• Testing Updates due to Coronavirus 

    Given the impact of COVID-19, all STAAR-EOC and IB tests have been canceled for May/June 2020. AP testing will be conducted remotely through the College Board. Additional information concerning AP Testing for May 2020 can be found on the AP Testing Updates (attachment) or on the College Board website at https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students.

     

    Students currently taking a STAAR EOC course, will not be required to take the associated STAAR EOC test, pending successfully completion of the course.

     

    Seniors still needing to retake a STAAR EOC test for graduation will be able to complete IGC (Individual Graduation Committee) projects in lieu of retaking the needed STAAR EOC tests. For additional information about IGC,  please contact Keri King at kking8@houstonisd.org

    IB Testing Changes  

    IB has put into place the following actions:

    • The DP and CP examinations scheduled between 30 April and 22 May will no longer be held.


    • The student will be awarded either a diploma or a course certificate which reflects their standard of work. The achievement will be based around the students’ coursework and the established assessment expertise, rigor and quality control already built into the programs.

    How will the results be calculated?

    • IB will be using vast historical assessment data to ensure that we follow a rigorous process of due diligence in what is a truly unprecedented situation. IB will be undertaking significant data analysis from previous exam sessions, individual school data, subject data as well as comparative data of schools who have already completed uploading requirements and those who have not.
    • IB will require schools to submit the coursework for all candidates. We will externally mark work that is usually marked by teachers, instead of taking samples and applying moderation.
