Answer Keys

Each item on the answer keys for TAKS includes the objective measured and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) student expectation. The objectives, which are the reporting units for each test are consistent from year to year. The assessment does not test every student expectation each year. So specific student expectations tested may vary from one test administration to another. The student expectations selected for a test are representative of the range of content and difficulty eligible for each objective assessed. The assessment could classify some items under more than one student expectation; in such cases, educator committee members helped TEA staff reach consensus on the best alignment of an item.

The intent of showing both the objective and the student expectation for each item on the TAKS answer keys is to help school personnel better analyze test results. Such analysis clarifies the connection between curriculum and assessment that  districts can use to improve instructional programs.
