STAAR EOC Information Page
Get ready to say goodbye to TAKS and hello to STAAR! Beginning in the
2011-2012 school year, the state's standardized testing program, the
Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) will be replaced by the
State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). For high
school students, End of Course (EOC) tests for certain high school
courses will begin replacing TAKS tests in 2011-2012. For grades 3-8,
TAKS tests will be replaced by the more rigorous STAAR tests. Please
navigate this website for additional information. A few highlights:
- Students who were in the 9th grade in the 2011-2012 school year were the first to take the End of Course tests.
- Under the new EOC system, students will be required to pass 5 End of Course exams in order to graduate.
the details of the new STAAR system are still being worked out by the
Texas Education Agency, Wylie Independent School District is committed
to preparing our students and our staff for this transition. This
website is intended to help keep you up-to-date on the developments.
