Home / Student Testing and Accountability
Two key responsibilities of the Texas Education Agency are assessing
public school students on what they have learned and determining district and
school accountability ratings. TEA provides an array of reports based on the
results of student testing and other assessments.
The Texas Education Agency evaluates public schools and districts under
state and federal accountability requirements.
Texas offers residents of Texas who have a government-issued photo ID
and are 18 years of age or older the opportunity to earn a State of Texas
Certificate of High School Equivalency. This page provides additional
information about the test series.
of School Improvement, formerly known as Program Monitoring and
Interventions, supports the state’s goals for public education by reviewing,
evaluating, monitoring, and intervening with campuses and their local education
agencies (LEAs, which include districts and charter schools) to ensure
excellence in education for all students.
TEA's testing page provides an overview of and results from our state’s student
assessment program, including the State of Texas Assessments of Academic
Readiness (STAAR), the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) and the
Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS).
