Reengineering School Assessment & Accountability


Our students and schools are more than one standardized test administered on one day. Yet, the STAAR Test is what Texas schools and students are assessed on most heavily. A 2021-2022 survey of more than 15,600 Texans show that educators, parents, community leaders, and students believe in accountability, but want more out of the current A-F system for our schools. It's time to rethink our accountability system. It’s time to Measure What Matters.
