STAAR passing levels set for student failure--by two years!by Ann Sutherland on 02/23/19
Turns out the norms for failure in the STAAR test are set two years higher. This is unbelievable. Example: 3rd grade kids fail unless they score at the 5th grade level. This was exposed in several research studies, but TEA refuses to budge.
This is the biggest testing scandal in US history--imagine misinforming an entire state of parents.
