TEKSbank, is developed by the ESCs for our Texas schools. We have 50,000 items developed to the cognitive and procedural rigor of the TEKS and STAAR. We work year round to update and develop new items to keep the bank current and fresh. If you are a TEKS Resource System district, then you will get access to the TRS Unit Assessment items too!
We also provide Navigate. Navigate is the dynamic item bank developed and curated by Certica and formerly NWEA and ETS. Navigate offers over 68,000 high-quality standards-based items have been written and/or aligned to Texas-specific learning standards.
The best part is that you can purchase both of these banks through Education Service Centers. We have used our combined purchasing power to negotiate a much lower price for Navigate. Plus, if you purchase both TEKSbank and Navigate, we can offer even lower, bundle pricing.
