Texas Education Agency (TEA) Commissioner Mike Morath adopted and published the final set of STAAR standards for the 2016-2017 school year, as well as the revised labels indicating student performance. The entire amendment can be found here: http://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/Laws_and_Rules/Commissioner_Rules_(TAC)/Adopted/17_03_Adopted_Amendment_to_19_TAC_%C2%A7101_3041/

The amendment replaces the standard progression phase-in schedule with the final set of standards and labels indicating student performance. The amendment establishes the 2015-2016 STAAR passing standard as the minimum passing requirement for this school year.

The biggest change comes in the form of the new labels TEA will use for student’s scores:

Does Not Meet Grade Level (Previously known as Did Not Meet Level II). This performance category applies to students scoring below Approaches Grade Level. Students at this level have not passed.

Approaches Grade Level (Previously known as Met Level II). The minimum score needed to meet Approaches Grade Level is the 2016 STAAR Level II standard. Students at this level have met the assessment requirements for purposes of Student Success Initiative grade promotion and graduation and are considered to have met at least the minimum passing standard.

Meets Grade Level (Previously known as Met Level III). The minimum score needed to achieve Meets Grade Level is the STAAR Panel Recommended passing standard.

Masters Grade Level (Previously known as Advanced). The TEA expects students at Masters Grade Level to succeed in the next grade or course with little or no academic intervention.
