Student Assessment

The Student Assessment Department is responsible for coordinating the administration of all state-mandated assessment programs for Pasadena Independent School District.  This includes STAAR for grades 3-8, STAAR End-of-Course and TELPAS for English Language Learners.  All second grade students participate in either the Logramos or ITBS exams.  In addition to training campus personnel to administer the tests, we coordinate ordering, distributing, collecting, and shipping all test materials. 

Karen White serves as the Director of Student Assessment and Tonya Smith Hypolite is the District Testing Specialist. Rounding out the department is the department secretary, Nina Fernandez and the testing assistant, Janet Montemayor. Norma Razo will be handling Special Projects.  Please contact us if you have any questions about state-mandated testing programs.
