My oldest took the required state test last week. (The test that gives the school grade.) She's a smart cookie so I'm sure she'll get at least a passing score. In 3rd grade, a student who scores a level 1, in Reading, will be retained. Level 2 passes but isn't considered proficient, I think that's the word. The highest is a 5.
My state has a different test for K-5 in Reading that all the girls took last year. But, my county opted to not give that test again, instead using a test that they developed themselves.

Kolby does he will took the math and reading portions of the STAAR test the beginning of April. They are taking the Science portion on Wednesday. He is in 5th grade, so he has to pass the test to pass the grade. (I think.)
They start in 3rd grade here, so my oldest just took them for the first time. She had a math test and a language arts test. They do science tests for some years, but not third. The school said we'd get the results sometime this summer. I haven't heard anything about kids being held back because of the test. I think my daughter probably did fine though, so it hasn't really worried me.
