TAKS–M Modification Guidelines


Student Assessment Home | Assessment A–Z Directory | Contact Student Assessment | Printing PDFs

The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills–Modified (TAKS–M) modification guidelines were created to ensure consistency when modifying TAKS test questions for use on TAKS–M assessments. These guidelines are used to preserve the construct of the original TAKS item and maintain alignment with the grade-level TEKS. Consideration has been given to the progression of complexity (word usage, sentence structure, vocabulary, and content) throughout the grades.

For the 2012-2013 school year, TAKS-M will be available only for students who are enrolled in grade 11.


To see all available TAKS–M resources, visit the TAKS–M Resources webpage. For students taking STAAR Modified, visit the STAAR Modified Resources webpage.
