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.
