Accessing your child's STAAR test results
06/19/2017

The State has created a new STAAR Report Card that will replace the Confidential Student Report (CSR) you have received in the past. The district will not receive printed copies of these new reports until mid-July. Parents or guardians should receive reports in the mail by the first of August.

To access your child's information before that time, follow the steps below. Do not hesitate to contact your child's campus principal by phone or email if you have trouble accessing the report card.

To access scores:

Step 1: Log into www.texasassessment.com

Step 2: Click on the button to Log into Student Portal

Step 3: You will need to enter your child's unique access code. If you do not have this code, click on the link, Lookup Access Code. You will then enter three items: Student's first name; Social Security number (PEIMS ID); and birth date. Once you have entered those items, click on the Go button. 

Step 4: Your child's unique Access Code will appear. Click on the Go button again. Your child's assessment history should appear on the screen. Click on the tests your child took this spring to see more detailed information about your child's assessment performance.

On the STAAR reporting for 2017, you will notice new performance labels. These are explained below.

The new labels represent how well students have learned grade level content and replace the previous performance labels of Unsatisfactory, Satisfactory and Advanced.

MASTERS GRADE LEVEL
Performance in this category indicates that students are expected to succeed in the next grade or course with little or no academic intervention. Students in this category demonstrate the ability to think critically and apply the assessed knowledge and skills in varied contexts, both familiar and unfamiliar. Students in this category did pass the STAAR test.

MEETS GRADE LEVEL
Performance in this category indicates that students have a high likelihood of success in the next grade or course but may still need some short-term, targeted academic intervention. Students in this category generally demonstrate the ability to think critically and apply the assessed knowledge and skills in familiar contexts. Students in this category did pass the STAAR test.

APPROACHES GRADE LEVEL
Performance in this category indicates that students are likely to succeed in the next grade or course with targeted academic intervention. Students in this category generally demonstrate the ability to apply the assessed knowledge and skills in familiar contexts. Students in this category did pass the STAAR test.

 DID NOT MEET GRADE LEVEL
Performance in this category indicates that students are unlikely to succeed in the next grade or course without significant, ongoing academic intervention. Students in this category do not demonstrate a sufficient understanding of the assessed knowledge and skills. Students in this category did not pass the STAAR test. 

A section of the new STAAR Report Card highlights how a student has progressed academically from the previous year. A student academic growth graph will show parents where their son or daughter was academically the previous school year and reflect any growth seen in the most recent school year.

Beyond the report card itself, parents are encouraged to “Log In, Learn More” at a newly-revamped website (www.texasassessment.com) to see even more student-specific information regarding their child. With a student-specific access code (provided in the STAAR Report Card), parents will be able to see a variety of resources and assessment components, including STAAR assessment questions and answers – along with their child’s answers. 

“The ability for each parent to view the actual STAAR questions posed to their child, along with the answers their child provided, should provide greater insight into the expectations at every grade level,” said Commissioner Morath.

The website also makes available resources designed to help parents prepare their son or daughter as they progress from grade level to grade level. Resources include tools to support a child’s ability to read and write, as well as tips and questions to help prepare for parent-teacher conferences in the new school year.Don't hesitate to contact us if you have difficulty accessing your child's scores.

If you do not have access to a computer, please let us know and we will share your child's scores by mail or phone.
