Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS)

In 2010-2011, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in reading in grades 3 through 9; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in English language arts in grades 10 and 11; in mathematics in grades 3 through 11; in science in grades 5, 8, 10 and 11; and in social studies in grades 8, 10 and 11. TAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The grade 11 Exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

    I prepared a 3 000 word comment providing an honest opinion of the district and school only to find out that the maximum count is 1 200. So in brief here is what I wrote *GreatSchools rating based on old scores which have improved. *Old Score due to Natural Disaster in Louisiana and Texas leaving students in and out of the district not being tracked and then being considered drop outs. *Despite what community members say violence isnt a problem it just so happens that the district chooses to release occurences wheras others do not. *Attendance is a problem. *Any student with drive and desire can be successful.

    I used to teach at West Orange-Stark High school my worst job ever. My co-works superiors even my students were all disrespectful. I would rather work as a prostitute than ever work for the school district again.

    I am the guardian of a student that makes a-b an is never a discipline problem. He was uable to go to state which he earned the right to but was unable because of one test an I was not informed until less than 24hrs before the trip. The last two progress reports I recieved shoed incomplete which is telling myself nothing when he brings home b's in that class. This whole situation could have been solved if I was informed better. One grade score should not lower a grade that much an three weeks later he is showing a b in the class in question. This teacher should show compassion. Thanks for letting my student down an I will try to keep his attitude high with no help from the school. Thanks for nothing.

    I'm a student at WOS High School and I like it here. Although every school has it's problems and our school's is not outside the ordinary don't believe everything that is said. We have good teachers and a great athletic program (although most athletes are hailed as some gods/goddesses sometimes). Every student can do well here it's just the effort that needs to be put forth.
