Parent Directions to Access State Testing Results
As in previous years, families will be able to access detailed information about their child’s areas of strength, as well as any gaps in learning, by reviewing STAAR and STAAR EOC results.
Parents will need to access the state’s Family Portal for all testing results by using their child’s Unique Student Access Code. Previous Unique Student Access Codes are no longer effective in the Family Portal.
Test results will be available in the Family Portal by the end-of-day listed in the chart.

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).
Parents have three options to obtain state testing scores:
- utilize the Home Access Center (HAC) to find the Unique Access Code and/or view TELPAS scores,
- utilize the state Student Portal with the Unique Access Code, or
- look up the Unique Access Code within the state Student Portal.
The new and improved redesigned CSR will include 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.

How to Find STAAR and TELPAS Scores for Your Student
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) requires districts to notify parents regarding state testing results (i.e. TELPAS, TELPAS Alternate, STAAR Alternate 2, and STAAR). Parents will not be provided a copy of the STAAR Report Card (SRC) but will be provided directions on how to access the unique access code in the, Home Access Center (HAC) that provides a link to the state Student Portal so that parents can easily access student test results.
- STAAR 3-8 results are not in HAC. Parents must use the unique access code to access state testing results on the state student portal.
- STAAR EOC results are in HAC and parents may also use the state student portal.
Katy ISD District Learning Assessments (DLAs)
DLAs are common formative assessments designed to gather evidence of student learning. As part of a balanced program, DLAs are not intended to be the sole assessment instrument in determining student learning. Rather, they provide teachers and students with diagnostic information to help guide the learning process.
Additional information about the DLAs can be found in the District Learning Assessment FAQs and in the District Learning Assessment Guidelines. For more specific administration dates, please contact your child's teacher(s).
