A STAAR is Born

The TAKS to STAAR Transition

North Oaks Middle SchoolFebruary 16, 2012A star is born. Texas schools are beginning the transition from TAKS to STAAR, the new assessment for students in the state of Texas.1Todays burning question . . .

TAAS

TAKS

All previous Texas assessments, including TAKS, have been named by the subject and grade, for example, Math Grade 9. Only exit level TAKS scores counted toward graduation. The TAKS tests have covered material that may have been learned during the current year, or in previous years.

The new STAAR test is named like the course names of the classes at school, for example, Algebra I. No matter what grade you are in when you take Algebra I, you will take the Algebra I STAAR test near the end of the second semester in that course. All STAAR end-of-course (or EOC) tests will become a part of the score required for graduation.15What is STAAR?Subjects/grades testedHigh school New end-of-course exams (EOCs) will replace grade-level testsCourses testedEnglish Language Arts English I, English II, English IIIMath Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra IIScience Biology, Chemistry, PhysicsSocial Studies World Geography, World History, U.S. History

Hitch your wagon to a STAAR, because the STAAR test has high expectations. The questions will be more rigorous than TAKS and will require a deeper understanding of the curriculum to prepare students for college and careers. The test is now timed with a four-hour limit for each subject. English Language Arts will require a four-hour period on two separate days. Performance on the STAAR test is tied to grades and the type of diploma that may be earned.17STAAR Performance StandardsLevel I: UnsatisfactoryLevel II: SatisfactoryLevel III:AdvancedReadinessSatisfactory Performance Passing

Did not meet standardMet standardCommendedPassing standardCommended PerformanceTAKSSTAARThis chart may help to clarify the performance standards. On this bar that represents the STAAR EOC scores, three standards will be set: The Minimum Performance StandardThe Satisfactory Performance Standard, which represents passingAnd the Readiness Standard

18STAAR Performance StandardsSTAAR passing standards for grades 3-8 will not be set until Fall 2012Parents will receive raw score results (number of items correct) in May 2012Final results will be sent out in January 2013SSI requirements for grades 5 and 8 are suspended in 2012No retesting opportunities in May and JunePassing reading and math STAAR not required for promotion

19STAAR and TelescopingStudents receiving instruction in a course above their enrolled grade will take the appropriate test for the courseExampleA third-grade student enrolled in a grade 4 math course will take STAAR grade 4 math and grade 3 reading tests

20STAAR and TelescopingProposed policy: Students in middle school taking high school courses with EOCs will take both the EOC and the grade-level test in that subject ExampleAn eighth-grade student enrolled in Algebra I will take the Algebra I EOC and STAAR grade 8 math test

21Four-hour time limitStarts with You may begin and ends with Pencils down with no extra transcription timeWarnings at regular intervalsBathroom and stretch breaks are included in the four hoursLunch and breaks due to emergencies or medical conditions are not includedSome students may meet criteria for extended time (e.g. dyslexia accommodations), but may not test past the end of the school day

22Available forms

STAARGeneral education and students needing some allowable accommodationsSTAAR-Modified, STAAR-AlternateSpecial education studentsSTAAR-L ELL students needing linguistic accommodations

For courses with EOCs, students will now receive a final grade, according to state law. The law also states that performance on the EOC will count as 15% of the final grade.

Students first enrolled in grade 9 in 2010-11 or earlier must meet TAKS requirements for graduationStudents first enrolled in grade 9 in 2011-12 or later must meet STAAR requirements for graduation

STAAR testing will be implemented in Grades 3-9 in the spring of 2012. This years sophomores, juniors and seniors (and repeating freshmen) will continue with the TAKS plan. Therefore, students who began with the TAKS test in ninth grade will continue to test with TAKS as their graduation requirement. Students who begin with the STAAR test this year in ninth grade will test with STAAR as their graduation requirement.24EOC Performance StandardsUnsatisfactorySatisfactoryAdvancedReadinessSatisfactory Performance PassingGrayareaMinimum Performance

STAAR EOCs will have an additional minimum performance standardEOC performance standards will be set in February 2012These standards divide the bar into four categories: Unsatisfactory The Gray Area Satisfactory and Advanced

25STAAR End-of-CourseTest scores on all EOCs will count toward graduation.A cumulative score will be determined for each subject area. A students scores in each subject area (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies) must equal or exceed a minimum cumulative score in order to be eligible to graduate.
