What is STAAR...What are STAAR EOC’s?

STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) is the state’s student testing program.  Assessments are based on the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) which are the state curriculum standards.  Students, beginning in 3rd grade through high school graduation, will be tested in the core subject areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.

High school students must take and pass certain required courses and the end-of-course (EOC) exams for those courses.  EOC’s are designed to ensure that sutdents are learning the specific course material and are prepared to succeed in college and/or careers.
