Meets Grade Level on STAAR
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) sets performance standards for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). Performance levels on each test are categorized under four labels:
- Masters Grade Level
- Meets Grade Level
- Approaches Grade Level
- Did Not Meet Grade Level
While TEA defines "Approaches grade level" as the minimum passing score, HEB ISD aims higher. Our district's goal is to empower students to achieve "Meets grade level".
According to TEA, "Meets grade level" means a student showed a good understanding of the subject material and is ready for the next grade. While there is room for improvement, your child doesn’t need a lot of extra help in this subject.
Note: This data lines up with Success Measure 1.1A in HEB ISD's Strategic Plan.
