Hays CISD students in grades 3-8 performed above the state average in most subjects in the spring State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, based on results released from the Texas Education Agency on Aug. 16.

Results for assessments in mathematics, reading-language arts in grades second through eighth, grades five and eight science and eighth-grade social studies were released to parents.

The gist

Based on the data from the TEA, the subject HCISD struggled to meet the most was seventh grade math, which at 51% fell 10 percentage points below the state average of students who approached grade level.

Parents can visit www.texasassessment.gov to see the specific STAAR results for their child, how their child answered each question on the test and specific recommendations to help their child grow academically.

“We recommend parents log in and learn more about their child’s STAAR scores. Being fully informed about their child’s academic progress can help them work with their child’s teacher during the new school year,” Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath said in a news release.

The district said officials won’t have any statements or confirmation of any data until closer Sept. 28, when accountability information is released.
