On April 5, 2018, Commissioner Morath issued a document entitled, “Important Updates for the 2018 Spring STAAR Administrations.” This document addresses changes in medical exemptions for STAAR, transcribing student responses, and classroom displays during testing.
The April 2018 issue of the Student Assessment Newsletter contains these updates as well as links to the PDFs regarding medical exemptions and transcribing. This information is in the Test Administration Updates section.
You can also find the newsletter and these new PDFs on the TEA Student Assessment Overview page in the What’s New in Student Assessment section.
