STAAR Special Education

The Texas Assessment Program is the statewide testing program. This program includes the STAAR© and STAAR Alternate 2 assessments.  Although most students will take STAAR with or without allowable accommodations, a student with a disability will be guided to the assessment which provides the most appropriate degree of support through the eligibility criteria established, whether the STAAR Alternate 2, STAAR online, or the paper version of STAAR. To assist with understanding Assessments for Students with Disabilities, ESC Region 20 has consolidated state and regional resources into one area. 
For Accountability Information
Access assessment results and reports for all assessment programs. This information is specific to the student and requires a six digit access code and the student's date of birth.
Where to find access code on previously received Confidential Student Report
The Texas Education Agency publishes STAAR report cards for all students,  formerly known as Confidential Student Reports (CSR). To improve communication and transparency TEA has conducted an overhaul of the STAAR report card. The goal of the redesign is to create a family-friendly report on student progress, specifically highlighting growth and improvement as much as proficiency, while giving parents concrete tools to help with student learning.
