Multiple-Part Assessments

HB 3906 allows for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) to be broken down into smaller testing periods with the goal of increasing scheduling flexibility for districts. This will likely be combined with the Integrated Formative Assessment Pilot to explore the possibility of creating a through-year assessment. During the 2019–2020 school year, the agency will work with stakeholders to explore potential options to best support districts and campuses while ensuring continued test security and validity.  

Update: A survey was sent out to stakeholders to determine interest in a multiple part end of year assessment. The agency is currently investigating comparability studies and research to ensure that any options offered will continue to meet the current rigorous statistical requirements of the STAAR.
