Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Educator's Guide to TEKS-Based Assessment. Elementary Level TAAS Grades 3-6, Spring 2000. Supplement.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Student Assessment.
This supplement is designed to be used in conjunction with the elementary level educator's guide to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum. The "Educator's Guide" shows the components of the TEKS that are eligible for testing, and this supplement provides information about the types of passages, test items, and writing prompts that may appear on an actual test form. It also contains sample items for each subject area as well as sample prompts for the writing test and sample passages for the reading and writing tests. This supplement is not intended as a guide for specific test preparation, but may assist teachers in developing instructional strategies to teach the content and skills in the TEKS curriculum. (SLD)
