Scores are in for the end-of-course State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness that students took in the spring of this year.
In Pearland ISD, scores were above the state average across the board in five different courses: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II and U.S. History. Scores in PISD hovered around the same as in 2021 and 2019 with a difference of a few percentage points.
There were no end-of-course exams in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
