Majority of Students Who Failed Parts of STAAR Test Skipped Retesting
(KCEN) -- More than half of high school freshman in Texas who failed one or more of the state's new standardized tests last spring skipped their chance to try again.
Reports from the Dallas Morning News shows these students who did not retake failed portions of the STAAR test could put them off track for graduation.
Passing rates of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, shows more than 50 percent of students who failed English, algebra, biology and geography skipped the make-up exam in July.
There is another opportunity for those students to retake the exam this week.
