STAAR test awards distinctions to 83 percent of RISD campuses, district meets standard despite ongoing changes of year-to-year comparisons 8/16/17
Richardson ISD students continue faring well against their peers throughout Texas with 83 percent of RISD campuses earning at least one distinction from the Texas Education Agency, based on 2016-17 STAAR Exam information released today. Overall, the district achieved a Met Standard rating.

The TEA designates campus distinctions by comparing performance of an individual school to a grouping of 40 similar campuses throughout Texas. A top-10 performance within that comparison group earns the distinction.

Among the 83-percent of RISD campuses earning distinctions, four—Richardson High School, Arapaho Classical Magnet, Brentfield Elementary, and Math, Science, Technology Magnet—earned all eligible distinctions. Additionally, 83 percent of eligible schools earned social studies distinctions, 60 percent earned science distinctions and 56 percent were designated for postsecondary readiness.

However, while RISD remains solid in its testing performance, comparing results from year-to-year has become more challenging due to annual changes in the STAAR test. Since being introduced in 2012, STAAR has not been administered the same way for two years in a row.
