The Texas Education Agency released spring 2023 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness results for students in Grades 3-8. The results include assessments in mathematics and reading-language arts in grades 3-8, 5th and 8th grade science, and 8th grade social studies.
This year’s results show reading-language arts proficiency for students in grades 3-8 remains largely unchanged from 2022 results. TEA notes that in math, “the significant effects of the pandemic still linger, but this year’s results present encouraging signs that the intensive supports offered by Texas public school systems are working.” Five of the six tested grade levels saw an increase in the percentage of students that met grade level, while results for Texas 6th graders mirrored 2022 results. A more detailed, statewide summary of 2023 STAAR 3-8 results is available on TEA’s website.
