I’m going to start off by prefacing STAAR testing is not fun for anyone. I can’t sugar coat it. It is what it is. If you are not familiar with Texas assessments, here is a quick introduction. We have our own state standards called the TEKS. We are not a common core state. During each school year, our students take state assessments beginning in third grade. The results of the tests will determine our campus and district accountability rating. That’s the basic explanation.
In order to state on top of all the requirements, I must stay organized. I have found a few shortcuts over the years to help me. One that is my go-to is the accommodations flipbook. I have to admit I got smart this year and recreated it in Google. Texas loves to change the rules of the game so much that making it in Google gave me the liberty to make a revision without redoing all the other pages in the process.
