• In reading, greater emphasis will be given to critical analysis rather than to literal understanding.
If a student has a passing grade in a course before the EOC score is calculated but a failing grade once the EOC score is included, can the student still be given credit for the course?
. Districts retain the same options that have always been available: (a) to use summer school or other remediation for purposes of allowing the student to reach a passing grade for the course or (b) to take the EOC assessment in subsequent administrations to increase that portion of the final grade.
A student must achieve a minimum score, as determined by the commissioner, for the score to count towards the student’s cumulative score.
There will be a “minimum score” established that is below “Satisfactory Academic Performance”(Level II) that will be allowed to be used toward reaching the cumulative total.
What are the STAAR EOC assessment requirements for the different graduation programs?
