TEA replaced TAKS with STAAR in 2012. Here is an excerpt from TEA’s website:
In spring 2012, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS).
The STAAR program includes annual assessments for
• Reading and mathematics, grades 3–8
• Writing at grades 4 and 7
• Science at grades 5 and 8
• Social studies at grade 8
Beginning in 2016, TEA will voluntarily administer STAAR EOC assessments for English III and Algebra II.
