Commissioner’s Proposed Rule Changes
“The following policy changes – which will be proposed
and adopted under commissioner of education rules –
are designed to assist districts in implementing new
requirements under House Bill 5 (HB5), as well as
follow established federal requirements, related to
the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness.”
– TEA Press Release on August 2, 2013
Commissioner’s Proposed Rule Changes

•
Performance Standards
Phase-in 1 extended for one more year
Timing of Phase-in 2 and Final are TBD
Students “lock in” a phase-in standard for
all EOCs when they take their first EOC

• Blueprint has been posted!

STAAR EOC for English I and English II
Reading and Writing combined in Spring 2014
Blueprint has been posted!
Transition plan maintains minimum score
and cumulative score for students who have
already passed reading or writing but not both
• ELL Special Provision only applies to English I
Commissioner’s Proposed Rule Changes
• Middle school students taking Algebra I
• Federal accountability requires math and
reading to be tested in grades 3-8 and
at least once in high school
• Take Algebra I EOC and grade-level STAAR
• Grade-level STAAR for MS accountability
• Algebra I follows student for HS accountability
Commissioner’s Proposed Rule Changes
• Middle school students taking English I
• Federal accountability requires math and
reading to be tested in grades 3-8 and
at least once in high school
• Will take English II to satisfy high school
accountability so no double-testing needed
when they take English I in middle school
Commissioner’s Proposed Rule Changes
• STAAR Modified
• The U.S. Department of Education has informed
states that assessments based on modified
standards for students served by special
education cannot be used for accountability
purposes after the 2013–2014 school year.
• As a result of that federal directive, all STAAR
Modified assessments will be administered for
the final time in the 2013–2014 assessment cycle.
Commissioner’s Proposed Rule Changes
• STAAR Alternate
• HB5 requires TEA to develop an alternate
assessment for the most severely cognitively
disabled students – one that does not require
teachers to prepare tasks or materials.
• This newly designed alternate assessment
will be administered for the first time in the
spring of the 2014–2015 school year.
