TAKS Test Accidentally Doubled Question

There may have been a mistake on your child's TAKS exam last week, but don't blame the students.

The TEA announced one of the questions on one version of the 3rd grade English test was put on the exam twice. The error affects about 5,000 students state wide, or 1.8% of third graders.

The TEA says the duplicate question will be taken into account when determining grades. TAKS scores will be released later this month.
