Medical Exceptions for STAAR
With the implementation of the new accountability system in 2018, TEA has developed a new process for indicating a medical exemption from the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®). A student must be absent during the entire testing window in order for the district to use the medical exemption. The new Medical Exceptions policy can be found here: https://tea.texas.gov/student.assessment/
Transcribing Student Responses
Student responses recorded in the test booklet may be transcribed onto an answer document. This change is a departure from previous years, as well as information in current test administration materials.
