What are STAAR end-of-course exams?

STAAR stands for State of Texas Assesments of Academic Readiness.  High School students must take and pass certain required courses and the end-of-course exams for those courses.  The assessments are based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, the state curriculum standards.  The end-of-course exams are designed to ensure that students are learning the specific course material and are prepared to succeed in college and/or careers.

Impact on Graduation:

Under current guidelines students will take up to 5 EOC assessments listed above based on their participation in courses. Each student must meet an "Approaches Grade Level" on each EOC assessment they take in order to graduate.  For students not meeting at least "Approaches Grade Level" on all five assessments, the State of Texas allows the student the opportunity to graduate under an Individual Graduation Committee if the student has passed at least 3 of the 5 assessments. 

The State also allows the use of alternate assessments to meet graduation testing requirements.  Please see Mrs. Brooks for more information. 
 

Time Limits:

English I & II will have a limit of 5 hours.  Algebra I, US History, and Biology will have 4 hours. 
 

Student Performance:

Once students have taken a STAAR assessment they will receive a score indicating their performance. Students performance will fall in to one of the three categories below:
  • Masters Grade Level
  • Meets Grade Level
  • Approaches Grade Level
  • Did Not Meet Grade Level
 High school students may continue to take the exams until they meet the passing standards.
