LPAC Assessment Decision Making

  • All students' assessment records must be closed in LPAS before the STAAR test is administered.
  • If you are making assessment decisions by STAAR content and date offered, then you will need to close and add a new assessment decision in the student detail page when other content area assessment arises. Ex. 5th math/reading decision now and 5th science later in April.
  • LPAC decisions on:

1. language of choice (eg. STAAR Spanish)

2. linguistic accommodations (bil. dictionary, extra time, etc.)

3. assessment that will be administered (STAAR L, STAAR with accommodations,

etc.) need to be conducted prior to testing administration.


  • Use STAAR Participation and Linguistic Accommodation Decisions and STAAR Decision Making Guide for LPAC
