Integrated Formative Assessment Pilot

HB 3906 requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to develop an integrated formative assessment pilot that informs instruction during the year and can potentially replace the single summative assessment. The agency will incorporate educator feedback to design a pilot program expected to launch in spring 2021. Any participation by districts is optional and does not eliminate a district’s obligation to administer the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) test.

Update: The agency is currently surveying stakeholders; conducting focus groups with teachers, curriculum leaders, and content experts; and working with the Educator Advisory Committee to design a pilot model that best serves Texas students and teachers.
