STAAR Report Card, formerly known as Confidential Student Report (CSR)
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) publishes STAAR report cards for all students every year. To improve communication and transparency with educators and families, TEA has redesigned the Confidential Student Report (CSR). The goal of the redesigned CSR is to create a family-friendly report on student progress, specifically highlighting growth and improvement as much as proficiency.

Texas School Accountability Dashboard
Created to give the public easy access to school accountability information, the Texas School Accountability Dashboard provides information about both the state as a whole and each individual district and campus. The charts report state-level results for the previous school year. Click a chart for more information that includes definitions of its terms. Find similar information about a specific district or campus or compare districts or campuses. (Note: To click a chart for information including definition of terms you must be at the main page which shows the state results, not from a district or campus report.)
