2023 STAAR Alternate 2 Administration
Early Student Results
Early student results from the 2023 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) Alternate 2 administration were available in the Centralized Reporting System (CRS) for district testing coordinators beginning May 9, 2023. An early data file will be posted to the district coordinator’s secure inbox in the Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) on this same date. Early student results from this administration will be available in CRS for other authorized users, including teachers with rosters, beginning May 12. District personnel can use these early results to review students’ performance for making local decisions. These early results are for student-level information not district or campus accountability reporting.
Returning Paper Test Materials
As a reminder, the deadline for districts to ship all paper test materials to Pearson for the 2023 STAAR Alternate 2 administration is May 12, 2023. All materials should be returned in the same boxes in which they were received using the return labels included in the shipment. Refer to the District and Campus Coordinator Resources for instructions on preparing materials for return.
SPRING 2023 STAAR Administation
For STAAR mathematics assessments, district testing personnel must complete all administrations and update score codes by 11:59 p.m. (CT) May 12, 2023. As a reminder, STAAR online assessments that were opened will automatically default to a score code of "S". District testing personnel must update students' score codes as needed. Updates to score codes are made in TIDE using the Appeals/Score Codes module. Refer to the Enter Student Information into TIDE page in the Complete Administrations section of the Coordinator Resources.
District testing personnel must ensure all student responses for paper administrations of STAAR® mathematics assessments are submitted in the Data Entry Interface (DEI) by 11:59 p.m. (CT) May 12. If district personnel do not submit student responses in DEI by this date, the responses will not be scored.
Student Responses for paper administrations of STAAR® reading language arts (RLA) and STAAR® Alternate 2 assessments were due April 28, 2023.
Student Responses for paper administrations of STAAR® science and social studies assessments were due May 5, 2023.
District personnel must ensure all student information for the spring STAAR administration is entered in TIDE by May 12. This includes student demographics, program enrollment, and designated supports. Changes made by district personnel after this date will not be included in accountability reports.
All score codes and student information for the STAAR® Alternate 2 assessment were due in TIDE by April 28, 2023.
Printed Report Cards and Confidential Student Labels
Districts will not receive printed copies of STAAR report cards unless they opt in to receiving printed copies by May 12. Districts will receive confidential student labels unless they opt out of receiving labels by this date. District personnel may make their selections for these options by using the Score Reporting and Label Requests module in TIDE.
Returning Paper Test Materials
The deadline for districts to ship all paper test materials to Pearson for the spring 2023 STAAR administration is May 26. All materials should be returned in the same boxes in which they were received using the return labels included in the shipment. Refer to the Coordinator Resources for instructions on preparing materials for return.
