Not everyone is happy with Texas’ current standardized test.
A new survey shows the more than 60 percent of “students, parents, educators, business leaders and other people” would like to see Texas’ state test replaced with a national test like the SAT or ACT, the American-Statesman’s Julie Chang reports. On top of that nearly 100 percent of those surveyed said they would prefer a standardized test that doesn’t have trick questions, which critics say are present on the STAAR, and about 95 percent of participants said they want a better way to test students with special needs.
It’s clear many of those who participated in the survey believes the STAAR leaves much to be desired.
We want to hear from you. Take our poll below and rank your satisfaction with the STAAR. If you’d like to be more specific feel free to tweet us @statesman or comment on our Facebook post.
