​​Exciting Changes to STAAR Report Cards​​

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has redesigned the STAAR report cards also referred to as confidential student reports (CSRs) to improve communication and transparency with educators and families.  The goal of this new design was to create a family-friendly report on student progress, specifically highlighting growth and improvement.  The new two-page CSR features are listed below:

  • Growth and progress information
  • A summer reading list
  • Lexile levels and trend data
  • New performance level descriptors
  • Resources and suggestions for parents to use at home
  • Suggested questions for parents to ask teachers and counselors


At this time, TEA has published learning resources which include a short video to explain the changes, as wells as, a link to download the presentation and talking points, templates of STAAR report cards for each grade, and online tools and resources. The new CSRs will be available online beginning June 13, 2017 for STAAR EOC and June 30, 2017 for STAAR 3-8.


On June 13th, TEA is also launching a new CSR website, which will include item-level analysis for each question on the STAAR, informational videos, and links to additional resources. For the first time, parents and teachers who log in will be able to see actual test questions from the current year's STAAR exam. They will also find information on boosting reading levels and developing student-specific summer reading lists. ​

Confidential Student Reports, Score Results, and Performance Label Changes

Beginning on Monday, April 24, 2017, parents may view the 2017 STAAR grades 5 and 8 mathematics and reading test results using either the Home Access Center (HAC) or the state Student Portal. Starting in 2017, this is the only way to access your child's scores for STAAR. If you do not have internet access, please contact your child's campus. In order to access the Student Portal, parents must have the child's Unique Access Code and the date of birth.

The Unique Access Code:

  • remains the same for the student during the entire state testing program,
  • located on any past Confidential Student Report (CSR) in the bottom right corner of the CSR, and
  • located in the Home Access Center (HAC).

The new and improved redesigned CSR will include the new performance labels. Parents may review a short video, additional resources, and the release timeline on the new STAAR report card also known as STAAR confidential student report (CSR) on the TEA website .    An adopted amendment which establishes a final set of performance standards for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) Grades 3-8 and end-of-course (EOC) assessments beginning with the 2016-2017 school year was approved.   The table below provides the change from the old performance labels to the new performance labels.
