The Texas Education Agency recently announced the availability of optional end of year assessments that districts, educators and parents can use to monitor student progress for the remainder of the school year. In addition, TEA is working on optional diagnostic beginning of year assessments for use as the 2020–21 school year starts.

Both EOY and BOY assessments include formerly released STAAR test questions (from 2013-2019) that measure the TEKS and cover the same grades/subjects covered by STAAR.  However, the student performance data from these assessments is not intended to be used for purposes such as accountability, staff performance, compensation measures or student placement decisions.   Click here to read more.
