Final Rule Amending STAAR Performance Categories

Wednesday, April 5, 2017  
Share |

TEA announced that the proposed changes to STAAR performance levels and categories that were originally published in draft form in December have been adopted as a final rule.

The final rule:

  1. Eliminates the phase-in of the Level II performance standard on STAAR; and
  2. Formally establishes 4 performance categories for STAAR assessments beginning this Spring:

Did Not Meet Grade Level
Approaches Grade Level
Meets Grade Level
Masters Grade Level

Approaches Grade Level is defined as the minimum passing standard on STAAR.

The final rule establishes the following performance standards for each of the 3 successful performance categories:

Approaches Grade Level = Level II-Phase-in 2015-16 Standard Progression (Level II-Phase 1 for EOCs for students taking an EOC prior to 2015-16)

Meets Grade Level = Level II-Final

Masters Grade Level = Level III
