New Student Portal of the Texas Assessment Management System—TAMS

What is the Student Portal?
The Student Portal provides parents and students with online access to scores from the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), including TAKS-Modified (but not including TAKS-Alt), and the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) assessments.


Access to the Student Portal

Access to the Student Portal can be located at https://student.tx.pearsonaccess.com/texas-studentportal/home.html


How Do I Login to the Student Portal:
The assessment data in the Student Portal is reached through a Unique Access Code and the student’s birth date as provided on the student’s most recent Confidential Student Report. Students who have lost their Confidential Student Report are instructed to contact their school to retrieve their Unique Access Code.

 

Once students and parents have logged in, they will be able to examine test scores in detail, as well as link to the User’s Guide for the Student Portal and explanations of the test scores. The birth date, as provided on the student’s most recent Confidential Student Report must be used.
