What is TAKS - The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) is a test administered beginning from the 2002-2003 school year. The TAKS measures the statewide curriculum in reading at Grades 3-9; in writing at Grades 4 and 7; in English Language Arts at Grades 10 and 11; in mathematics at Grades 3-11; in science at Grades 5,10, and 11; and social studies at Grades 8, 10, and 11. The Spanish TAKS is administered at Grades 3 through 6. Satisfactory performance on the TAKS at Grade 11 is prerequisite to a high school diploma.
How to prepare best for TAKS
— By making TAKS preparation a part of a daily or weekly routine, students
can gradually understand the concepts, as well as get accustomed to general test-taking techniques.
Preparation for TAKS should occur over a sufficiently long period of time so that students do not feel flooded by
information or overwhelmed with practice. In developing a study routine, consider spacing of sessions;
choose shorter intervals as opposed to long blocks of time; and be consistent about the time of day and
conditions under which you provide opportunities for study.
