Utilizing our 25 plus years of experience studying high stakes test material in Texas, we have produced materials which are no longer chasing the "test," but reaching for student understanding and mastery of the state mandated curriculum to the "depth of thinking" required for success on the STAAR. We updated our books with a focus on assessing each of the TEKS; hence, we have developed assessments for learning. The level of difficulty demonstrated by our materials is reflective of that required by each of the TEKS. The focus is on student understanding. By utilizing open-ended questioning, a teacher is able to evaluate the student's understanding of a concept, the analytical thinking, and ability to use multiple-choice questions to analyze right and wrong elements of a concept. Achieving mastery of the TEKS that are assessed for success vertically throughout a student's climb to college readiness, drives the state assessment as wells as the materials developed by GF Educators, Inc.
GF Educators, Inc. is proud to have the opportunity to serve you and the education community. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality, on-target materials possible at a very reasonable price. As a part of the education community, we feel the need to produce products that are both useful and effective. With the Step Up to the TEKS series, we believe the goal of assessing the learning of the TEKS has been accomplished.
