HOUSTON – June 28, 2017 – Parents are now able to access their student’s 2016-17 STAAR results online at www.texasassessments.com where they will see changes in how their child’s performance is labeled and find additional resources to support their child’s academic growth.
Previously, a student’s performance was labeled as Advanced, Satisfactory, or Unsatisfactory. The new labels are Masters Grade Level, Meets Grade Level, Approaches Grade Level and Does Not Meet Grade Level.
To access scores, parents will need to enter their child’s date of birth and six-character Unique Access Code, which appears on the student’s most recent STAAR Report Card. Parents who do not have the access code will be able to look it up by entering their student’s first name, typing their child’s Social Security Number into the PEIMS field and inputting date of birth.
Besides finding the scores, parents will also have the option of downloading a copy of the child’s Confidential Student Report or CSR, which has also been redesigned to be more understandable. Those reports are already available for secondary students who took end of course exams. The Texas Education Agency is scheduled to release all report cards for students in grades 3-8 by June 30.
A section of the new STAAR report card highlights how a student has progressed academically from the previous year with a growth chart. The website also provides resources designed to help parents prepare their student for the next grade level, support their reading and writing, as well as tips and questions for parent-teacher conferences.
For additional information on the new student report cards, please visit the TEA website or contact your child’s school.
