Students took the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) earlier this spring, and parents will have access to their child’s results. The state assessment is one of many ways to measure student learning. Teachers will use STAAR results along with other information to support your child’s learning in the new school year.
Today, June 30th, parents can access their child’s STAAR end-of-course results by logging into ASCENDER PARENT PORTAL.
Beginning August 16th, parents will be able to access their chlid’s STAAR grades 3–8 results by logging into ASCENDER PARENT PORTAL.
After logging in, under the SUMMARY tab you will see a link labeled TEXAS ASSESSMENT. This will take you directly to your child’s STAAR results, which will include detailed information for each test question, identifying your child’s strengths as well as areas where they may need additional support.
Families have shared that seeing which questions their child got right and wrong has been the most useful. You will also see easy-to-use resources to help your child focus on the skills they most need help with and can work on at home.
When you meet with your child’s teacher in the fall, use this information along with your own observations from the past year and your child’s grades to create a plan to help your child succeed.
