Austin ISD high school students performed below state averages in three out of five subjects on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness End-of-Course assessment. Little growth was seen from spring 2023 scores, according to results released by the Texas Education Agency June 7.

The breakdown

AISD student scores slightly decreased from 2023 in U.S. history, English I and algebra I. Students performed above the state average in U.S. history, and in biology, students performed at the state average of 57% meeting grade level.

Meets grade level means students are likely to succeed in the next grade, according to the TEA.

In algebra I, English I and English II, AISD students performed slightly below state average.

Statewide, student scores remained consistent in algebra I, biology and English I from the year prior. There was an increase in the percentage of students meeting grade level in English II and a decrease for U.S. history.

Quote of note

“The [EOC] results highlight both the progress Texas students and educators have made, and the challenges that remain to help students improve outcomes, which can only come from a robust assessment and accountability system,” TEA Commissioner Mike Morath said in a news release. “While we celebrate the gains in English II, we must also acknowledge the areas where student performance has not recovered to prepandemic levels.”

Next steps

Parents can view their children's individual scores online, including their student's answers for each question.

Results for grades 3-8 will be made publicly available June 14.
