Ever since TAKS was replaced with STAAR, I still wonder why TEKS wasn’t changed to STEAR.
- TAKS – Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills
- TEKS – Texas Essentials of Knowledge and Skills
- STAAR – State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness
- STEAR – State of Texas Essentials of Academic Readiness
Italicized means currently used. Bold means I want to use them.
STEAR was completely made up by me. I want the acronyms to change – if STAAR is with TEKS I think TEKS should say bye bye and join TAKS in the black hole, while STEAR joins. Just thinking.
