KMB students will participate in the following STAAR Assessments:
Grade 3 – Reading & Math
Grade 4 - Reading, Math, & Writing
Grade 5 - Reading, Math, & Science
Once students have taken a STAAR assessment they will receive a score indicating their performance. Students will fall into one of the three categories below:
Level III: Advanced Academic Performance
Level II: Satisfactory Academic Performance
Level I: Unsatisfactory Academic Performance
TEA established a four (4) hour time limit for both STAAR grades 3-8 assessments and STAAR EOC assessments for the 2014 test administration. TEA notes that a four hour time limit should provide sufficient time for the majority of students to complete the test. The rationale for time limits aligns Texas testing practices with other times states and national assessments, ie. SAT, ACT, and AP examinations. Extended time accommodations for students with unique learning needs will continue to be offered.
Impact on Grade Advancement:
Students will take STAAR exams in the spring of the school year. The Student Success Initiative requires that students in grades 5-8 meet the Level II Satisfactory Academic Performance Standard on both the reading and math exams to be promoted to the next grade. Students in grade 5 will be required to meet the Level II standard on STAAR before being promoted to the next grade level. Retest administrations for students who did not meet the standard will be offered in May and June.
