TEA Releases STAAR 3-8 Statewide Scores
Statewide passing rates for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) reading tests in grades 3 through 8, writing tests in grades 4 and 7, science tests in grades 5 and 8, and the social studies test in grade 8, remained stable for the fourth consecutive year, according to preliminary results released today by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The results reflect passing rates for the spring 2015 administration of STAAR.
Note that TEA previously released preliminary results for STAAR reading in grades 5 and 8 (http://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/News_and_Multimedia/Press_Releases/2015/5th 8th_graders_perform_well_on_first_2015_administration_of__STAAR%c2%ae_reading/). TEA does not have district-level test results at this time. Those results are available from your local school districts and charters.
Comparison charts of statewide results and summary charts provide greater detail on all STAAR results. To review state-level reports for grades 3 through 8, visit the Texas Education Agency website at http://tea.texas.gov/staar/rpt/sum/.
