Science TEKS Streamlining Update
The streamlined TEKS, including edits, have been posted!
A clean version of the streamlined science TEKS is also available.
TEA Assessment has also posted updated documents that detail blueprints and readiness/supporting standards!
*For TEKS that only have one student expectation (SE), letter notations will not be assigned in the Texas Register. However, for assessment purposes, a letter WILL be assigned for uniformity in reporting.
For example, TEKS 7.6 only has one SE. The Texas Register does not allow a bulleted list for one item so it remains 7.6. However, for assessment uniformity, 7.6 will be listed as 7.6A. This occurs in other grade levels and content areas.
If you need assistance with professional development or planning for the streamlined science TEKS, please let us know. Contact us via phone at 713.744.6577 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

STAAR Review to Go Tracking Tables
Students may use a tracking table to record which activities they've completed as well as indicate their confidence level with the concepts in each. The tables also serve as a way for teachers to see student accomplishment.
*If your district or campus has created folder activities, the blank template is customizable for your needs.
*Print either file two-sided, flip on short side. You'll get 2-4 cards per sheet depending on the file.*
Use these cards as formative assessment tools. Students can indicate their answers sliding a paper clip or by pinching the card using an index finger and thumb. You'll be able to see answer choices no matter where you are in the room because the cards are the same on the front and back. The faces at the bottom of the card on the left can indicate how confident students are with the answers they've chosen.
