STAAR EOCs and Your Student
All high school students must take and pass certain State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) EOC assessments to graduate from a Texas public high school; these are English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and U.S. History. Students are automatically registered to take the required STAAR EOC assessments based on their course enrollment.
Lamar HS students will take the following STAAR EOC assessments as they complete the associated course:
Algebra I - spring of 9th grade
Biology – spring of 9th grade
English I – spring of 9th grade
English II – spring of 10th grade
US History – spring of 11th grade
On each assessment, students will receive a performance level indicating their proficiency in that subject. Those performance levels are:
Masters Grade Level - Shows mastery of the course content (passing)
Meets Grade Level - Shows strong knowledge of course content (passing)
Approaches Grade Level - Shows some knowledge of course content but may be missing critical elements (passing)
Did Not Meet Grade Level - Shows a lack of basic understanding of course content (not passing)
To pass a STAAR test means to score in the "Approaches" performance range or higher. If a student scores in the "Did Not Meet" range, then s/he did not pass that STAAR test. Students not meeting standards on a STAAR EOC assessment will be given additional opportunities to sit for the test (3 opportunities per school year) until they achieve a score of Approaches or better.
