STAAR Redesign

  • The STAAR redesign [VIDEO] is a result of House Bill (HB) 3906 passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in 2019. The Texas Education Agency (TEA), working with a wide range of education stakeholders, including the Assessment Education Advisory Committee, has been exploring the most instructionally supportive approach to implementing these changes. The redesign will be implemented in the state summative assessments administered in the 2022–2023 school year.

    The STAAR redesign includes several components: 

    Additionally, the Reporting Timelines for Spring 2023 STAAR provides dates when educators can expect to see early student results in the Centralized Reporting System (CRS) and preliminary assessment reports to assist with initial planning for accelerated instruction.  

HISD Credit by Exam & Acceleration Information

  • The purpose of examination for acceleration is to allow a student to accelerate and earn credit for a particular course or grade level without formal instruction in that course or grade level. The student must score a minimum of 80% on the required tests taken for the appropriate course/grade level that the student wishes to accelerate out of. Thank you for your interest in the Examination for Acceleration testing program. Secondary students may earn credit in academic subjects, and elementary students may accelerate a grade level, by passing the appropriate examinations for acceleration. Exams will be offered for all elementary grades and most TEKS-based courses in grades 6-12. See more information below on Hallsville ISD's Examination for Acceleration testing program.
