     The Willis ISD Student Assessment Department manages and oversees the training, production, and administration of district assessments as well as all state assessments included in the Texas assessment program. The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) program, which was implemented in spring 2012, includes annual assessments for:

    Reading and Mathematics, grades 3–8
    Writing at grades 4 and 7
    Science at grades 5 and 8
    Social Studies at grade 8
    End-of-Course (EOC) assessments for English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology and U.S History.

    STAAR Alternate 2 - TEA has developed the STAAR Alternate 2 assessment to meet the federal requirements mandated under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), a federal education law previously known as No Child Left Behind.  TEA designed the STAAR Alternate 2 to assess students in grades 3–8 and high school who have significant cognitive disabilities and are receiving special education services.

    TELPAS - TEA designed the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) to assess the progress that limited English proficient (LEP) students, also referred to as English learners (ELs), make in learning the English language.

    TELPAS Alternate - TEA has developed the TELPAS Alternate assessment to meet the federal requirements mandated under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which requires states to administer an alternate English language profiency (ELP) assessment for English learners (ELs) with the most significant cognitive disabilities who cannot participate in the general ELP assessment, even with allowable accommodations.
