State assessments provide valuable feedback to students,parents, and schools about student progress from grade to grade.
State assessments are directly linked to the state-mandated curriculum for Texas public school students known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum.

By developing the academic skills specified in the TEKS, students can build a strong foundation for future success.
