STAAR and End of Course Testing Information
Texas’ student assessment program is designed to measure the extent to which a student has learned and is able to apply the knowledge and skills at each tested grade or course identified in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The state assessment program is fully aligned to the TEKS, the statewide curriculum required to be taught.
The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) tests students in grades 3-8. In high school, end-of-course (EOC) tests will be administered to students completing Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English I, English II, English III, World Geography, World History, and U.S. History.
