MISD Students Outperform State Averages in Preliminary STAAR, EOC Results

Jun 12, 2015 04:21PM ● Published by Kevin

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the preliminary results for the 2015 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) exams, and Mansfield ISD outperformed state results in all areas.

MISD exceeded the state’s expectations in passing rates for the STAAR test (grades 3-8). Students in those grades were tested in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. The same trend held true for the STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) exams, which assesses English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and U.S History classes.

“Overall, I’m pleased with the results from our students,” said Darrell Sneed, associate superintendent of curriculum, instruction, and accountability. “The results show where our strengths lie and where improvements can occur. Our goal is to evaluate all areas and see how we can progress.”

2015 STAAR (Grades 3-8) Passing Rates

Math results are excluded due to the lack of passing standards and the change in Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, or TEKS, which are the state standards for what students should know and be able to do.
