Assessments for Students with Disabilities


A student with a disability can be a student:

  • with an identified disability who receives special education services;
  • with an identified disability who receives services under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; or
  • with a disabling condition who does not receive special education or Section 504 services.

The Texas Assessment Program* is a statewide testing program that includes the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), STAAR Spanish, STAAR A, STAAR L, and STAAR Alternate 2. Although most students will take STAAR with or without allowable accommodations, a student with a disability may have choices regarding which of these assessments is most appropriate.

* Information about the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) or the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) is located on their websites.
