While school staff finishes up the initial administration of STAAR Alternate, the TEA STAAR Alternate Team has been planning next year’s assessment.
What we know so far:
1. Essence Statements for Spring 2013 administration are posted at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/special-ed/staaralt/essence/
2. Assessment tasks will be posted in August after they have been reviewed by educator committees in July.
3. The Participation Requirements will not change for next year.
4. The “ARD Guide for Determining High School STAAR Alternate Assessments” has been updated and is posted at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/special-ed/staaralt/partreqs/
