A-F Answers: how are the staar grades 5 & 8 results for students with student success initiative requirements included in accountability calculations?


The Answer:

For students in grade 5 and 8, accountability calculations include assessment results for reading and mathematics from the first administration and first retest administration of all STAAR versions. The second retest administration in June is not used. For students in grade 5 and 8, the STAAR reading and mathematics assessment results from the first and second administration, the first retest opportunity are processed in two steps.

The best result is found for performance and progress, considered separately. If all results have the same level of performance, then the most recent result is selected for calculation. Second, the accountability subset rules determine whether the result is included in accountability.
