Spring 2018 STAAR Scores Now Available

Parent Notification of Child’s Performance on the
State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR)

Hutto Independent School District

 

Date: June 13, 2018

 

Dear Parents:

 

During the Spring semester, the state-administered STAAR assessments to students enrolled in grades 3-8 as well as students enrolled in End-of-Course subjects (Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and US History). If your child took at least one of these assessments, their results are now available in the Student Portal at www.texasassessment.com. Within the Student Portal, you will find a comprehensive assessment history, overall test results, individual test questions, and information on how to support your student(s) at home. A PDF copy of the STAAR Report Card is also available.

 

If your child took at least one of these assessments in Hutto ISD, an individualized PDF copy of this communication (to include your child’s Unique Access Code), as well as a PDF copy of your child’s STAAR Report card, will be posted to Skyward Family Access on Friday, June 15. (You will find these documents under the Report Cards/Letters tab, and will receive an automated email via Skyward Family Access once they have posted.)

 

The Unique Access Code assigned to your child will be associated with them throughout their STAAR testing years. If you have access to any STAAR Report Cards from prior testing years, you can use that code to access your child’s scores at anytime at www.texasassessment.com.

 

If you have not yet received a Unique Access Code for your student, have misplaced it, or would like to access your child’s scores prior to the June 15 posting, you can so at www.texasassessment.com by following the steps below.
