Families, thank you for your partnership this year. As you know, our students took the STAAR tests earlier this spring. The STAAR is one of many ways to measure student learning. It will help schools and teachers better understand where students may have gaps from the disruptions to learning caused by the pandemic. Teachers will use STAAR results along with other information to co-create learning plans with families to jumpstart learning next year.
Scores are available on different dates according to the grade and subject tested.
Spring STAAR EOCs (grades 9-12) are available now.
Grades 5 and 8 STAAR Math/Reading ONLY are available starting today, June 21, 2021.
Grades 3-8 STAAR will be available on June 28, 2021.
Summer STAAR EOC Retests will be available on July 30, 2021.
You will be able to access your child’s STAAR results via the www.TexasAssessment.com website. (Detailed instructions for login on next page.) This will take you directly to your child’s STAAR results, which will include detailed breakdowns in each subject, identifying your child’s strengths as well as areas where they may need additional support. Parents have shared that seeing which questions their child got incorrect has been the most useful. You will also see easy to use resources that can be used at home over the remainder of the summer focused on the skills your child needs the most support with.
We expect STAAR scores will likely be lower for many students this year. So many of them have experienced trauma and loss in addition to the disruption in classroom instruction. You can help ease stress by letting your child know that this year, STAAR is only meant to help teachers and parents better support their learning.
The partnership between families and schools has never been more important. We encourage you to log in and learn more anytime after your student’s scores are available. Use this information along with your own observations from the past year and your child’s grades to create a learning plan with teachers in the fall to help your child succeed.
Thank you for your partnership! We wish you and your family a healthy and restful summer.
