  • What kind of test are you asking about?? TAKS tests are given starting in the 3rd grade but the teacher should be doing practice tests and instruction throughout the school year.

  • For what exactly? TAKS? If so, the tests are given toward the end of the year, but they do "benchmark" testing and preparations throughout the entire year. 1st and 2nd grade learn test taking skills by doing their own tests, just not the State Req. TAKS.

  • If, on the odd chance, you are referring to homeschooling, Texas does not require any type of testing.
