We have updated this post with additional information on how to read your child’s score. Scroll down for more details.

Melissa Schools received notification of student performance results for the Spring 2017 STAAR tests on Wednesday, June 14.

This year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has created a new STAAR Report Card, replacing the Confidential Student Report (CSR) that parents have received in the past.

The district will not receive printed copies of the new STAAR Report Card until mid-July. Parents can expect to receive copies of this report by mail no later than August 1.

In the interim, parents can now access their student’s STAAR performance results and testing history online. To do this, visit the Texas Assessment Data Portal and follow the instructions below.

  • Enter your student’s Unique Access Code and Date of Birth
  • If you do not have a Unique Access Code, click on Lookup Access Code
    • You will then enter three items:
      • Student’s First Name
      • Student’s PEIMS ID (Social Security Number)
      • Student’s Date of Birth
  • Click the “Go” button
  • You should then see your student’s performance results
