ASSESSMENT & ACCOUNTABILITY
CONVID-19 and Testing
The Governor has canceled STAAR testing for April, May and June 2020.
STAAR will not be used to determine if a student advances to the next grade level.
Students in 5th and 8th grade will be promoted based on Board policy for promotion.
Students taking a high school course that would have taken that STAAR EOC test for the first time in the Spring of 2020 will not be given that test if they earn credit for the course this school year.
Current High School students that earn all credits needed for graduation and only need to retake the STAAR test for graduation in 2020 will have an Individual Graduation Committee (IGC) that will determine if they meet graduation requirements.
Students in grades 9-11 who were needing to retake a STAAR EOC test for any subject will have the opportunity to test in December 2020.

Assessment And Accountability
Assessment and Accountability serves instructional leaders by facilitating state testing. This is accomplished by collecting, analyzing and reporting test results and program data. These tasks support data-driven decisions and targeted planning of instruction. In doing so, we help Southwest increase student success by focusing on accurate and timely data collection, evaluation, and dissemination.
The Southwest ISD testing program, like others in the State of Texas, is primarily determined by the many and varied components of the State assessment program.
We invite you to contact us with any questions you may have. You are also welcome to call 622-4347 to set up a time to visit our office located at 11914 Dragon Lane to discuss the District and/or State testing program.
