She provides support, information, and technical assistance to across the district and is a part of the Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment Department.
State Assessments supported through this office are: STAAR, STAAR Alternate 2 and TELPAS.
The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) program includes STAAR (grades 3-8 and end-of course) and STAAR Spanish (grades 3-5). All grades/subjects and courses of STAAR (English only) can be administered on paper or online with or without embedded supports. STAAR is an assessment designed to measure the extent to which students have learned and are able to apply the knowledge and skills defined in the state-mandated curriculum, the TEKS.
STAAR Alternate 2
STAAR Alternate 2 is an assessment based on alternate academic achievement standards and is designed for students with significant cognitive disabilities receiving special education services. STAAR Alternate 2 is administered in the same grades/subjects and courses as STAAR.
TELPAS assesses the progress that ELLs in K-12 make in acquiring the English language in the domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
