Can a student use a score from a substitute assessment that he or she earned in middle school to fulfill their graduation requirements?

Yes. A middle school student can use a qualifying score on a substitute assessment to satisfy his
or her testing requirement for an EOC assessment as indicated in each cell in the substitute
assessment chart. For example, a grade 8 student who is administered the PSAT 8 can choose to
use a qualifying math and/or reading and writing score to substitute for an EOC assessment when
they are enrolled in Algebra I and/or English I instead of taking the corresponding STAAR EOC
assessments.
