Test your students at the beginning of the year to see what concepts you need to plan. This packet has directions, an answer document, an individual student profile, and a class profile. The 2015 STAAR Released Biology test is cross referenced with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.
The data will have to be entered by hand. Or, let me do it for you for a small fee of $2.00 per student. For example, 30 students X $2.00 = $60.00. Have the students record their answers on the answer document. Snap a picture of each document with your cell phone and place in a file. Then, send the file to me. Be sure and use identifiers other than your students' names.

with the subject line containing which test you need graded.
Keep the tests for reteaching and review, or practice test taking skills later in the year. The results are great for determining learning activities and Tiers in learning.
Keep your results in a binder that will help you have a successful professional plan for the semester or year, or have it together for those quick conferences with administrators, parents, or students.
