STAAR EOC Information Page
STAAR Get ready to say goodbye to TAKS and hello to STAAR! Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the state's standardized testing program, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) will be replaced by the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). For high school students, End of Course (EOC) tests for certain high school courses will begin replacing TAKS tests in 2011-2012. For grades 3-8, TAKS tests will be replaced by the more rigorous STAAR tests. Please navigate this website for additional information. A few highlights:
  • Students who were in the 9th grade in the 2011-2012 school year were the first to take the End of Course tests.
  • Under the new EOC system, students will be required to pass 5 End of Course exams in order to graduate.

Although the details of the new STAAR system are still being worked out by the Texas Education Agency, Wylie Independent School District is committed to preparing our students and our staff for this transition. This website is intended to help keep you up-to-date on the developments.
