Progress Measures

STAAR

The STAAR progress measure provides information about the amount of improvement or growth a student has made from year to year. For STAAR, progress is measured as a student’s gain score, the difference between the score a student achieved in the prior year and the score a student achieved in the current year. Individual student progress is then categorized as Did Not Meet, Met, or Exceeded. More information can be found in the links below.  

    STAAR Alternate 2

    The STAAR Alternate 2 Progress Measure provides information about the amount of improvement or growth a student has made from year to year. For STAAR Alternate 2, progress is measured based on a student’s stage change from the prior year to the current year. Stage change is determined by: 1) classifying the student’s scores from the previous school year and the current school year in terms of the stage of performance achieved, and then 2) comparing the stages from year to year. Student progress is then categorized as Did Not Meet, Met, or Exceeded. 

     

    Due to the redesign of STAAR Alternate 2 reading language arts assessments, progress measures were not calculated for the 2022–2023 school year.  STAAR Alternate 2 progress measures will be reported again in spring 2024.
