Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS)
The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) exit level tests measure examinee mastery of the state-mandated curriculum. The TAKS exit level tests are available in four subject areas: English language arts (ELA), mathematics, science, and social studies.
The tests are administered in October, March, and July. Examinees who were enrolled in grade 9 in 2010–2011 or earlier must pass all four subject areas to meet assessment graduation requirements for a Texas public school diploma. Any student for whom TAKS is a graduation requirement may test during any of the TAKS test administrations.
