Definitions and Relationships

This section of the website describes the basic elements that were investigated and defines and describes each of the tests. TASP is included in this section because it is also a standardized test for Texas students. There have been some questions of late relating the TASP and the TAAS. Some of these include:

  • Why are so many students passing the TAAS, and failing the TASP?
  • What exactly is the TASP?
  • Why is there one test for exiting high school and another test for entering college?

These questions are not all fully answered in this site, but they are valid questions and a good start for another project.

We encourage you to investigate all of the claims, both for and against any point on this website. We also encourage further reading and research and, of course, critical thinking on your part.
