State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness, known as STAAR tests’ results have arrived for Texas Public Schools.
STAAR tests measure the progress of students from 3rd grade to 8th grade, as well as high school.
Texas STAAR test results provide data that could help parents, teachers, and students improve academic performance in reading/language arts, writing, science, math, and social studies.
STAAR tests are also used to evaluate each school’s Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
The STAAR results can be accessed electronically through the Student Portal provided by the Texas Education Agency.
Friendswood ISD parents will need their student’s unique access code and their date of birth to login to their account. The unique access code can be found through two different routes (1) Skyward Family Access or (2) Look-up Feature in the Student Portal.
The look up feature does require the parent to know the student’s first name, date of birth and PEIMS number which is either the Social Security or State ID.
“The boxes of tests arrived in the mail and FISD is excited once again to see the great scores our students generated. Because the result are arriving after school is out, we will not be mailing them home,” Executive Director of Accountability, Testing and Research Stacy Daugherty said.
FISD parents may pick up a hard copy from the FISD administration building this summer or at their child’s campus after Aug. 1.
FISD Administration is located at 302 Laurel Dr. in Friendswood.
