When can my student take the EOC test?
Each year students will have three opportunities to take the EOC tests. They are:
1. Fall (December)
2. Spring (May)
3. Summer (June)
All high school students are required to take each EOC test as many times as necessary until he/she meets the passing standard for that test, as this is one of the requirements for graduation.
Upon completion of an administration, each student will receive a score indicating their performance on a report called the "Student Report Card" (SRC).
This report card is ONLY available via the website (see Testing & Accountability Dpet. Homepage for instruictions.)
The NEW STAAR Test performance Levels, as found on the front page of the student report card are as follows:
- "Do Not Meet Grade Level:" This means your student has "No basic understanding of course expectations and may need significant support in the coming school year."
- "Approaches Grade Level:" This means your student has "Some knowledge of the course content, but may be missing critical elements and needs additional support in the coming school year."
- "Meets Grade Level:" This means your student has "Strong knowledge of course content and is prepared to progress to the next grade level."
- "Masters Grade Level:" This means your student has shown "Mastery of course knowledge and skills, and the student is on-track for college and career readiness."
TEA established a four (4) hour time limit for both STAAR grades 3-8 assessments and STAAR EOC assessments, except for ENG I & ENG II, which has a five (5) hour time limit, beginning with the April 2014 administration. TEA notes that these time limits should provide sufficient time for the majority of students to complete the test. The rationale for time limits aligns Texas testing practices with other timed state and national assessments, i.e. SAT, ACT and AP examinations. Extended time accommodations for students with unique learning needs will continue to be offered.
CISD Electronic Device Policy:
T.E.A. has directed the Local Education Agencies to develop an elctronic device policy, as outlined in the 2018 Test Security Supplement. In order to comply with this directive, CISD has instituted the following Electronic Device Policy;
All cell phones and electronic devices are prohibited during testing sessions, and should not be available for use by the student. The student's test may receive a "Do Not Score" label if the device is visible or heard during the test administration. If the Test Administrator observes the devise, it may be confiscated and reported to the District Testing Coordinator and the Campus Administrator for further action. The campus/district is not responsible for the loss or damage to phones or electronic devices brought into the testing environment. The safest place for devices on testing days is at home. Thank you for your cooperation.
