The Office of Student Assessment provides support and service to all district personnel regarding the administration of district-wide assessments, state and federal accountability and reporting of results. Our district systems include training, resources and customer support for all campus personnel in Fort Worth ISD.
Student Assessment administrates and evaluates state assessments, local assessments, and accountability. State assessment includes TAKS (grade 11), TELPAS (K-12), and STAAR. Fort Worth ISD local testing includes Curriculum Based Assessments and other local tests given through out the year to evaluate student progress. Accountability procedures include district and campus ratings for state accountability. State accountability is determined by three indicators: TAKS, Completion Rate, and Dropout Rate. Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) evaluates three measures for federal accountability: Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics, and either Graduation Rate or Attendance Rate.
