STAAR Spring 2015 Administration

The State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test was implemented in the 2011-12 school year. There are two types of STAAR tests: grade 3 through 8 assessments and End-of-Course (EOC) assessments.

Students in grades 3-8 are administered the state-mandated STAAR tests during the spring. Students are tested in two or more of the following academic areas: reading, math, writing, social studies, and science. Students take the reading and math assessments annually in grades 3-8. The writing test is administered in grades 4 and 7; the science test in grades 5 and 8; and the social studies test in grade 8. Spanish-versions of STAAR tests are available for qualifying students in grades 3-5.

Students in high school credit bearing courses are administered EOC assessments. There are five EOCs that a student must successfully pass in order to meet high school graduation requirements: English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and US History.

Alternate versions of STAAR and EOC tests are available for qualifying students in grades 3-11 that are served by special education or limited English proficient services. Assessment accommodations and modifications are provided as allowable by the TEA; students must access the accommodations routinely and effectively in regular class instruction as part of the eligibility criteria.

To access summary tables showing percentages of GISD students on each campus and district-wide who met standard on each content test administered, click here. These tables are based on the STAAR Summary Reports for general English assessments administered during spring 2015. For grade level/content areas that permit retesting, only the results for the initial assessment are presented.
