The Texas Education Agency’s texasassessment.com is an educational website to inform Texas parents, teachers, and administrators about the state’s STAAR test and how student scores are interpreted. We joined this project as a sub vendor for an Austin marketing firm that specializes in branding and technology projects for the State of Texas and higher education.
The site underwent strict quality assurance testing on three fronts – Standard Beagle, the design agency, and the prime vendor. Additionally, we had to ensure that the site met state guidelines for accessibility and functionality, which included meeting WCAG 2.0 guidelines and IE 9 backward compatibility.
The initial redesign launched in 2017, and users have been able to find answers to their questions about how to interpret their scores and how to improve them.
Over the next two years, we were part of continuous improvements to the site, which included the additional of a Spanish language version, a book finder tool, interactive scorecard walkthrough, and information about the math section of the state mandated tests.
