STAAR MASTER® Announces First Ever Score Guarantee for Texas Schools

January 8, 2019

SAN ANTONIO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2019--ECS Learning Systems, the leading Integrated Standards Prep™ company and developer of STAAR MASTER ®, announced today the new STAAR MASTER® Score Guarantee to ensure Texas teachers and schools see STAAR performance improvements year over year. STAAR MASTER is a market leader in Texas and is used by almost half of all Texas school districts. The STAAR MASTER Score Guarantee initially supports grades 3 through 8 for reading and math using both the STAAR MASTER Student Practice Books and Practice Tests.

“ECS Learning Systems is dedicated to advancing students’ achievements through Age-Appropriate Blended Learning™ solutions and this starts with STAAR MASTER. As a result, we put in place the STAAR MASTER Score Guarantee to stand behind the proven efficacy of our learning solutions,” said David Cumberbatch, CEO of ECS Learning Systems. “At ECS, we are motivated by the quality curriculum and technology to transform education for every student, regardless of background, and help them to achieve academic success.”

To qualify for the STAAR MASTER Score Guarantee, eligible schools and districts need to fully implement the STAAR MASTER System in a grade level. ECS Learning Systems measures gains using the actual STAAR exam for the grade/subject purchased. Therefore, the school must have prior year actual STAAR results for the grade/subject purchased to compare to current year results. For more details on the program call ECS directly at 1-800-688-3224 or visit www.staarmaster.com.
