Reports by district, campus, teacher or student. Tracks federal and state accountability measures and provides data analysis to assist in developing differentiated instruction. Academic Performance Dashboard included for administrators.

OVERVIEW

State Assessment is a web-based tool for analyzing the state assessment results of STAAR, TAKS, and TELPAS. It allows Texas school leaders, administrators, and teachers to work smarter, not harder.

User-friendly instructional, demographic, comparison, trend, and student reports are available for you to customize. Generate reports within a few clicks for parent conferences, ARDs or PLC meetings. All reports can be created at various levels/scopes to help monitor students’ progress (i.e., state, regional, district, campus, class, teacher or student levels).
