The Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) performance standards would be phased in over the next two-three years.

Commission of Education Robert Scott said, “These standards will be challenging for our students and will push academic performance to a new level in Texas.  Students who pass the STAAR end-of-course assessments will be better prepared for success in the next course or in postsecondary pursuits.”

The three performance standards are as follows:
– Level III: Advanced Academic Performance
– Level II: Satisfactory Academic Performance
– Level I: Unsatisfactory Academic Performance
