AUSTIN — The Texas Education Agency (TEA) today released results for the 2019 spring administration of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test. Results for high school end of course assessments were particularly strong, with gains in all subjects compared to 2018.  
“This year’s STAAR scores demonstrate Texas students are learning more in the core subjects designed to set them up for future success,” said Education Commissioner Mike Morath.
“More students are meeting grade-level expectations in Texas, and this is because of the incredibly talented work of our educators in classrooms around the state.”
Morath also noted the important role recently passed legislation, including House Bill 3, will have in providing Texas educators the resources, including funding, and tools necessary to improve student outcomes.
“Governor (Greg) Abbott and members of the Texas legislature have taken seriously the task of educating future generations. House Bill 3 will help increase opportunities to secure greater educational outcomes for our students, and TEA remains committed to our work of identifying additional areas for improvement, growth and progress.”
Grades and subjects tested include Mathematics, Reading, Writing, Science, Social Studies, Algebra 1, Biology, English 1, English 2 and U.S. History.
