Examinees who do not register online by the deadline can register at a participating campus on the day of testing, if the campus can accommodate them. District personnel will then be responsible for entering the registration information online. The October 2013 TAKS exit level tests will be administered on October 21, 2013 (English language arts); October 22, 2013 (mathematics); October 23, 2013(science); and October 24, 2013 (social studies). A list of participating campuses can be found at http://www.TexasAssessment.com/oosTestSites.

The administration of the TAKS retests for former TAAS examinees will be October 21, 2013 (English language arts writing); October 22, 2013 (mathematics); and October 23, 2013 (English language arts reading). TAKS scores will be matched to the appropriate TAAS passing standard.
