This site will provide you with information on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), which are the state standards for what students should know and be able to do.
What tests must you take in high school?
Students first entering ninth grade in the 2011–2012 school year will notice the biggest difference in the new testing program. Under the TAKS program, students were required to take two tests in the ninth grade and four tests in both the 10th and 11th grade. In order to graduate, students were required to pass four exit-level tests given at 11th grade. With the new STAAR program, the exit-level tests will be replaced with 12 end-of-course (EOC) assessments, which students will take as they complete the corresponding course.
The 12 EOC assessments are:
• English I, English II, English III
• Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II
• Biology, Chemistry, Physics
