STAAR and Assessment Updates

STAAR and Assessment Updates

 

Which assessments have been cancelled for spring 2020?

  • STAAR assessments for grades 3-8
  • End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments
  • STAAR Alternate 2

What about EOC Testing for Seniors? If a student is a senior but still must complete one or more EOCs to graduate, will he/she be able to graduate?

Most students have already completed courses that have corresponding EOC assessments before their senior year. Normally, a student who has not passed up to two of his or her required STAAR EOC assessments may graduate through the individual graduation committee (IGC) process.

For students who are still working to meet assessment graduation requirements as seniors in the 2019–2020 school year, required performance on academic assessments to graduate is being waived for spring 2020. Effectively, this means that current seniors may graduate through the IGC process regardless of the number of EOC assessments they still need to pass.


 

If a student is not graduating this year and still has one or more EOCs required to graduate, how will that affect the student’s credit in the upcoming year?

If the student is not graduating and is currently enrolled in an EOC course, the EOC passing requirement will be waived if the student receives credit for that course.

If the student is not graduating and has an outstanding EOC assessment that they have not passed from a previous year, they will still need to retake and pass that EOC assessment prior to graduation.


 

What can students do for SAT/ACT test prep and test-taking?

SAT: The College Board has cancelled the March 28, 2020 and May 2, 2020 national test administrations. Registered students will receive a refund. The College Board has not yet cancelled the national SAT test administration scheduled for June 6, 2020. The College Board will update their web page regularly with information about the impact of the coronavirus.

To help students keep their college readiness skills sharp while many schools are closed, the College Board and Khan Academy continue to provide free resources online, including full-length practice tests and personalized learning tools at Khan Academy. 

 

ACT has rescheduled the April 4, 2020 national test administration to June 13, 2020. ACT will send an email to registered students with instructions on how to reschedule. ACT has created a COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page with real-time updates for this evolving situation.
