Parents,This week started the second round of state testing with the addition of advanced placement exams. Along with taking state-mandated STAAR / EOC exams, our students will participate in 18 AP exams for which they can potentially earn college credit.
The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) is a state mandated test that measures the statewide curriculum in reading at Grades 3-8; in writing at Grades 4 and 7; in mathematics at Grades 3-8; in science at Grades 5, 8; and social studies at Grades 8. Furthermore STAAR End of Course (EOC) tests are administered to students enrolled in the following High school classes: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II and U.S. history. All students enrolled in those courses are REQUIRED to participate in this testing.
Satisfactory performance on STAAR tests is a prerequisite to grade promotion in grades 5 & 8 Math & Reading and satisfactory performance on the STAAR EOC tests is prerequisite to a high school diploma.
Several things you can do to help ensure a successful testing experience is that your student arrives on time, fully rested and prepared to test. It is also important to make sure your child eats a good dinner the night before and a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your student to do his or her personal best can greatly improve self-confidence levels leading to better performance.
