TAMSA is a 100% volunteer, statewide, grassroots organization comprised of concerned parents and community members who seek an alternative to the financial, developmental, and emotional toll high-stakes STAAR tests are inflicting on our children.
TAMSA advocates for meaningful assessments that provide timely and relevant information to parents, students, and teachers. STAAR tests are very expensive, both in administration and remediation. We need to improve public education through the use of effective student assessments that allow for more productive classroom instruction and more efficient use of public funds. cd
