STAAR results coming soon, how to access
Earlier this spring, Lake Dallas ISD students took STAAR tests as required by Texas Education Code. The STAAR is one of many ways the state measures student learning. This year, those results will help schools and teachers better understand where students may have gaps from the disruptions to learning caused by the pandemic.
For students in elementary and middle school who took STAAR exams (grades 3-8), STAAR results will be available beginning June 28. For high school students who took STAAR end-of-course exams, results will be available beginning June 15. In both situations, results will be accessible through Lake Dallas ISD's Skyward Family Access.
After logging into Skyward Family Access, you will see a new icon labeled District Links. From there, click TEA Assessment. This will take you directly to your child’s STAAR results, which will include detailed breakdowns in each subject, identifying your child’s strengths as well as areas where they may need additional support. Parents have shared that seeing which questions their child answered incorrect has been the most useful. You will also see easy-to-use resources that can be used at home over the remainder of the summer to focus on skills your child needs the most support with.
We expect STAAR scores will likely be lower for many students this year as a result of the pandemic. Many students have experienced struggles, trauma or loss in addition to the disruption in classroom instruction. You can help ease stress by letting your child know that this year, STAAR is only meant to help teachers and parents better support their learning.
The partnership between families and schools has never been more important. We encourage you to log in and learn more once your child's test results are available. Use this information along with your own observations from the past year and your child’s grades to create a learning plan with teachers in the fall to help your child succeed.
Thank you for your continued partnership, and we wish you and your family a healthy and restful summer.
