Out of School Testing
Due to staffing reasons, Chapel Hill High School will be unable to accommodate walk-in testers for any Out-of-School testing. Information for individuals wishing to return to Chapel Hill High School to re-take one or more STAAR test in place of TAKS is described below.
Based on recent legislative actions, the Texas Assessments of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) tests are no longer being administered. Former TAKS examinees (including former Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills [TAAS] and Texas Educational Assessment of Minimal Skills [TEAMS] examinees) can take the appropriate State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) test. STAAR may be used as an alternate assessment to meet graduation testing requirements for former TAKS, TAAS, and TEAMS examinees.
English language arts (ELA): Former TAKS, TAAS, or TEAMS examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for the ELA reading and/or writing tests may take the STAAR English II test offered both paper and online and contains sub-headings for each section, Reading and Writing.
o Examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for both reading and writing will take both Reading and Writing sections. Both sections must be completed the same day.
o Examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for the reading test only will take the Reading section only.
o Examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for the writing test only will take the Writing section only.
Mathematics: Former TAKS, TAAS, or TEAMS examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for the mathematics test may take the STAAR Algebra I test.
Science: Former TAKS examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for the science test may take the STAAR biology test.
Social Studies: Former TAKS examinees who have not met the graduation requirement for the social studies test may take the STAAR U.S. history test.
Additional information regarding graduation testing requirements for former TAKS examinees may be found at http://tea.texas.gov/student.assessment/taks/ For questions or assistance, contact the Student Assessment Division.
