Information about State Required Testing - STAAR & TAKS

Cell Phones
Just a reminder that all cell phones and electronic devices are prohibited during testing.
Phones are not to be out even after a student finishes their test.

A student possessing a cell phone or any communication device that has text messaging, email, video or internet capabilities while taking STAAR or any other state assessment must turn off the device before receiving any test materials. The student’s test may not be scored if the student had possession of a test booklet or answer document while the device was visible to the teacher. The device must be confiscated and the offense reported to the campus testing coordinator.

The STAAR program includes annual assessments for grades 3–8 in reading and mathematics; assessments in writing at grades 4 and 7; in science at grades 5 and 8; and in social studies at grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology and U.S History.

STAAR Retest Dates
December EOC retesting will occur on the following dates.

This is for students who are retesting only, meaning that the student has taken EOC before and were either not successful or absent. We are also offering initial testing to Seniors ONLY, who are taking an EOC course, such as US History, so they can have an additional opportunity to test in the spring, if needed. Your student will be notified this week if they owe an EOC exam, and a letter will be mailed home as well.

Students who owe both Algebra and US History will test Algebra on Tuesday, Dec. 6 and US History on Thursday, Dec. 8. Students who owe both English II and Biology, will test English II on Wednesday, Dec. 7, and Biology on Thursday, Dec. 8. Students who owe all 5 exams will test one each day, Monday – Friday.

Please contact your student’s grade level counselor if you have any questions or concerns.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact your student’s counselor, or Shelly Schwebach, Assistant Principal of Assessment, at 832-484-5123, or
