ESTAR/MSTAR system update

*The ESTAR/MSTAR system is now functional. Due to recent technical difficulties with the ESTAR/MSTAR system, the spring window for the ESTAR/MSTAR Universal Screeners and MSTAR Diagnostic Assessments will remain open to allow more time for testing.

*The MSTAR Universal Screener (Revised) Pilot is scheduled to begin on May 19 and will continue into June. We now have the number of students needed for a successful pilot. The MSTAR Universal Screener for grades 5-8 is currently undergoing revisions to align with the revised math TEKS to be implemented in 2014-15. It will be available for the fall 2014 testing window.

*The ESTAR Diagnostic Assessments (DA) Pilot has been rescheduled for fall 2014. Because TEA wants to ensure the highest quality instrument validity, the release of the ESTAR DA has been delayed until spring 2015. Information regarding the ESTAR DA pilot will be shared during the summer and prior to the start of the 2014-2015 school year.
