What Is the Texas Through-year Assessment Pilot?

House Bill (HB) 3906, 86th Texas Legislature, 2019, required the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to develop and pilot an innovative, through-year assessment model as a possible replacement of the summative State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®).
