STAAR Interim Tests


Did you know that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has created free, optional interim assessments? It’s currently being piloted on a voluntary basis, but TxEIS has the implementation already done. You can select students to take the STAAR Interim Reading and/or Math and create the Interim precode file. TxEIS is always on the ball. You can read a little more about it on TEA’s website. But let us know if you want to know more.

Indulge us: poll results

Holiday poll results image

We recently asked you what you did over the holidays. And the results are in. The majority of you (33%) said that you did all of the above (ate too much, watched Star Wars, had lots of family time and watched too much football). That’s impressive. We’re glad you got so much done. A close second with 27% was those of you who had lots of family time. This is definitely something we understand at the Texas Computer Cooperative where we believe that family is really important. Next, with 13%, came ate too much — preaching to the choir on that one, y’all. And finally 7% said they watched Star Wars… No one simply watched too much football, which is understandable. And that brings me to my favorite three “other” answers: All above but football, Mexico (love the brevity of this) and, my favorite, NOTHING.

Thanks for participating in the survey; we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We’ll see what else we can come up with.
