Texas students show dramatic academic growth during TAKS era

In this last full year of TAKS testing, passing rates on every single Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills test at every grade improved dramatically since 2003 when the exams were first given, according to preliminary results released today by the Texas Education Agency.

This substantial improvement occurred even as the passing requirements increased over the life of the testing program and as results on TAKS (Accommodated), a test given to some special education students, were included in the calculations in later years.

This year, passing rates on 23 of the 27 subject area tests given in English were in the 80 to 99 percent range
