McKinney ISD's 2018 TEA STAAR component scaled score is 90. As is further explained in the Texas Education Agency 2018 Accountability Manual, the STAAR scaled score is calculated by first adding equal weightings of the percentage of assessments on which students’ performance mastered grade level, met grade level and approached grade level, dividing the sum by 3 and rounding it to the nearest whole percentage. This raw STAAR raw component score is then adjusted or “scaled” by using a conversion table to align accountability letter grades and scores of Texas public school districts and campuses.

As depicted in the 2018 TEA STAARS scores graph (right) and shown in the McKinney ISD schools table (below), fifteen McKinney ISD campuses attained TEA STAAR scaled scores between 90 and 100, four campuses STAAR scores were between 80 and 89, four had scores between 70 and 79, four had scores between 60 and 69, and one McKinney ISD campus had a STAAR scaled score between 50 and 59.
