STAAR RESULTS DELAYED
The Student Assessment Division of the Texas Education Agency notified all districts this morning of their intent delay the return of all non-Student Success Initiative (SSI) results for the Spring 2016 STAAR administration until on or about July 5, 2016. This affects students that took the following assessments in March and May 2016:
- Grade 3: Math and Reading
- Grade 4: Math, Reading and Writing
- Grade 5: Science
- Grade 6: Math and Reading
- Grade 7: Math, Reading and Writing
- Grade 8: Science and Social Studies
This delay has been requested by the Agency so that the state’s new testing contractor can:
“…conduct additional quality control checks and verifications to ensure that results for all students for which answer documents or online records were submitted are reported error-free...”
LCISD appreciates the efforts of the Agency and the Commissioner to ensure the accuracy of all student assessment results. When results arrive in the District and are validated by our staff for accuracy, we will release information to parents through our Skyward family portal and, if needed, via direct mail delivery. Our goal is to have results to parents no later than the week of July 11, 2016.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s campus or the LCISD Research, Assessment and Accountability department at 832-223-0136 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
