Share with Appropriate Staff

The purpose of this email is to notify districts of updates to the 2019–2020 and 2020–2021 Student Assessment Testing Calendars. In response to feedback we received from districts and the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) Superintendent Cabinet, as well as in consultation with TASA’s executive leadership, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has revised the testing calendars. The revised calendars are posted on the TEA website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/calendars

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) paper assessments will continue to be available during a one-week testing window for April and May; however, the one-week paper administration has been moved up to coincide with the first week of the two-week online administration. Online testing for April and May STAAR assessments will continue to be available during a two-week testing window (except for grades 4 and 7 writing, English I, and English II, which are administered on a scheduled date for both paper and online).

Please call the Student Assessment Division at (512) 463-9536 if you have any questions about this information.
