Throughout the year, there will be a series of “checkpoint” or “benchmark” tests administered district-wide in Math, Reading, and Writing. The scores are used by teachers to identify the objectives each student has mastered and what objectives require more support. Teachers then adjust and modify lessons so that every student has every opportunity to learn and successfully master all objectives.
Near the end of each year, STAAR tests are administered state-wide and are intended to measure a student’s mastery and growth on grade level objectives. The test dates are as follows:
2nd Round of STAAR Re-takes
STAAR Math – May 13th
STAAR Reading – May 14th
3rd Round of STAAR Re-takes:
STAAR Math – June 24th
STAAR Reading – June 25th
