State Raises Bar For TAKS Scores

The state wants students to score better on the TAKS test, and it's going to hold schools accountable.

Starting next school year, the minimum passing rates for the TAKS will increase by ten-percentage points in all sections except for math. There are more than 6,700 Texas schools rated by this test. Last year 92 of them had unacceptable scores.

If these new standards would have been in place, that number would have jumped to 1200.
