STAAR | Interim Assessments

TEA provides districts with interim assessments for grades 3-8 Math and Reading, Spanish Grade 3-5 Math and Reading, Algebra I, English I and English II. Students begin with Part 1. After completion, students are routed to a corresponding Part 2 based on their Part 1 performance. Probability of a student achieving Approaches, Meets and Masters in STAAR tests is then estimated based on student performance on both sections in an interim test.

TEA will post and update the cumulative student data file each week. It is the responsibility of the district to upload their STAAR Interim Data File to DMAC. For assistance, please contact the DMAC Help Desk (866.988.6777).
