Eligible students may meet testing requirements with Spanish versions of the S.T.A.A.R. assessments, available in grades 3-5. Students in grades 9 - 12 will take the S.T.A.A.R. End-of-Course tests (E.O.C.). The E.O.C. tests consists of 5 course-specific tests including Algebra I, Biology, US History, English I, and English II.
