Information from the Assessment TETN August 26, 2015
Pearson will use TAMS for TAKS in the October testing cycle only.
Pearson will begin using Pearson Access Next on October 12 for TELPAS, STAAR ALT, and TAKS (TAKS after October).
There will be training webinars on these new systems and information will be coming later.
SB 2349 will be posted in the Texas register soon. This bill will align testing so that students moving to Texas or being home schooled will not have to take an EOC if they come into your district with a credit in a tested course. This replaces the rule that said that the student had to have credit before September 1, 2014 to not test.
