Parent Access to TAKS
Student Portal Available through Texas Assessment Management System

This communication is a reminder that the Student Portal is available through the Texas Assessment Management System, delivered through PearsonAccess. The portal provides students and parents access to scores from the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), including TAKS–Modified (but not including TAKS–Alternate), and the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS).

The assessment data in the Student Portal are reached through a Unique Access Code and the student’s birth date as provided on the student’s most recent Confidential Student Report. Students who have lost their Confidential Student Report are instructed to contact their campus to retrieve their Unique Access Code. This same code will be used to access State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) scores in the next assessment year.

Specific features of the Student Portal include the following:
· viewing student assessment results over the course of a student’s academic career
· comparing individual student TAKS assessment results to campus, district, and state averages (Comparisons are not available for exit level retests.)
· examining student performance on TAKS, including individual student scale scores and objective scores
· examining a student’s TELPAS proficiency ratings, comprehension scores, and composite score/rating

The Student Portal can be accessed by entering http://www.TexasAssessment.com/Students in a Web browser. This will take users to the Families tab of the Texas Assessment website. From that location, students and parents can click a link that will take them to the Student Portal login page. They are also able to view a guide to the Student Portal and access additional information about the TAKS and TELPAS assessments. Once students and parents have logged in, they will be able to examine test scores in detail, as well as access the guide and explanations of test scores.
