The TAKS Exam is designed to evaluate whether a student has met the state standards for their age. The TAKS exam assesses math, reading, writing, science and social studies, and is tailored for each grade level.
The TAKS consists of five multiple-choice sections each of which is given a scaled score. In addition, there is an essay section for the 4th, 7th, and 9th-11th grade exams. The maximum scaled score varies for each section from year to year, but 2100 points are needed to pass the exam, and 2400 are needed to receive a "commended" status.
