The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) are administered for the first time this spring. Since these are new assessments, the timeline for reporting results to parents/guardians is different this year for End-of-Course (EOC) and the grades 3-8 administrations.
For STAAR grades 3–8 assessments, the Texas Education Agency will set the performance standards in fall 2012. Districts will receive and mail the Confidential Student Reports in January 2013. The unusual delay in reporting STAAR grades 3-8 results is only for this first year of STAAR implementation.
