Students who have not received a high school diploma because they did not meet the passing standard on sections of the Exit Level Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) will have the opportunity to retake the necessary subject area tests in March 2012. The TAAS test is no longer being offered; however, individuals eligible to take TAAS will take Exit Level ELA and/or Mathematics, and the TAKS scores will be matched to the appropriate TAAS passing standard.
Students currently enrolled in school who need to retest are automatically registered; however, those who are out of school must register online by 5 p.m. Jan. 20. Individuals will need to register online for testing by accessing the website at pearsonaccess.com.
The registration process will be online only. Online registrations received after this date will not be processed. Paper registration packets will no longer be available.
The 2012 March TAKS tests will be administered on the following dates:
- March 5 – Social Studies
- March 7 – ELA (and ELA Writing for TAAS Examinees)
- March 8 – Mathematics (and Mathematics for TAAS Examinees)
- March 9 – Science (and ELA Reading for TAAS Examinees)
