Information from TEA About Grades 3-8 Spring 2015 STAAR Testing

Since the new performance standards for grades 3–8 mathematics will not be determined prior to the release of the state accountability ratings, the 2015 state and federal accountability results will not be based on the new standards. For accountability purposes only, the state plans to establish a link between the spring 2015 STAAR grades 3–8 mathematics tests and the previous mathematics tests to determine equivalent performance standards. The 2015 state and federal accountability results will be based on student performance on the 2015 assessments at each equivalent passing standard. Use of these equivalencies will allow for the inclusion of grades 3–8 mathematics results in the accountability system, as required by statute, and will also allow the agency to meet the current deadlines specified in state law for issuing state accountability ratings.
