TEA releases 2024 STAAR End-of-Course Assessment results

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has announced the release of the spring 2024 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) End-of-Course (EOC) assessment results. These critical evaluations of student performance cover assessments in Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology, and U.S. History.

Starting Friday, parents and families can access their child’s individual STAAR EOC results by visiting their school district’s family portal or TexasAssessment.gov.

SUGGESTED: Houston ISD announced 'significant gains' in student performance in STAAR, EOC results

Access requires a unique code provided by their child’s school. Texas leads the nation in promptly releasing statewide student achievement results, ensuring families can quickly review their child's academic progress. The transparent system allows parents to see every STAAR question and answer, including how their child responded to each question.

Key Findings from 2024 STAAR EOC Results:

  • Steady Performance: The percentage of students meeting grade level remained consistent in Algebra I, Biology, and English II.
  • English II Improvement: There was a notable 4% increase in the percentage of students meeting grade level in English II, reaching 60%.
  • U.S. History Decline: There was a 2% decrease in the percentage of students meeting grade level in U.S. History, dropping from 71% to 69%.
  • Emergent Bilingual (EB) Students' Success: EB students showed significant improvement across all EOC assessments, particularly in English I and II, where grade-level proficiency increased by four percentage points.

Emergent Bilingual students make up 24% of Texas' 5.5 million public school students. These students are in the process of acquiring English and speak another language as their primary language. Texas serves one of the largest populations of EB students in the nation.

Commissioner’s Statement:

Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath commented on the results, stating, "The 2024 STAAR End-of-Course results highlight both the progress Texas students and educators have made and the challenges that remain to help students improve outcomes. While we celebrate the gains in English II, we must also acknowledge the areas where student performance has not recovered to pre-pandemic levels. These results emphasize the critical importance of continued investment in research-based education strategies to ensure every student in Texas has the support and resources they need to succeed. Our commitment to improving educational outcomes remains steadfast, and we will keep working tirelessly to provide high-quality education for all Texas students."
