Texas School System


Texas public schools utilize the TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) test for measuring student compentency in subject areas. With lengthier reading passages and more analytical math questions to calculate, the TAKS test is a more comprehensive skills test.

Although Texas is no stranger to state-mandated, standardized tests, the TAKS promotion standard is, in part, a response to federal legislation known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, which directs substantial reforms to state and local educational systems. Each state must measure public school students' progress in reading and math every year from third to eigth grade and at least once from 10th through 12th grade.

With the implementation of the TAKS test, the State of Texas began a new system of rating schools in October 2004. This new system is based on TAKS scores and school completion rates.
