All in Supporter Update
On May 6, 2016, Educational Testing Service's Texas STAAR Psychometric Services Team sent a memorandum titled A Report on Testing Time Collected During March 2016 Test Administration to Gloria Zyskowski, the Student Assessment Division Director at the TEA. From page one of the memo: "These percentages do not support the [HB-743] requirement (i.e., 85% of students completing the test in 2 hours) for the lower grades."
"Each one of you supporting this campaign has made it possible for our collective voice to be heard. And we have now been heard in two major ways..."
We have a case.
We have a lawyer.
And we have a plan...
We are going to sue the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to stop using the results of the STAAR until it complies with state law.
