The Texas Resource Review (TRR) process was created by and for Texas educators to provide quality reviews that are independent, objective, comprehensive, and Texas focused.
A typical review cycle is completed over a period of about four months.
Each quality review cycle begins with the development of a Texas-specific rubric that defines what quality means specific to each subject area. Final rubrics remain constant for several months prior to beginning the review cycle and throughout the review process.
Quality reviews are completed by Texas educators from all around the state. Every member of our review teams is rigorously vetted and trained to ensure that evaluations are detailed and comprehensive.
Materials are reviewed for content, instructional concepts, and educator supports. TRR reviewers spend more than 150 hours evaluating materials, collecting evidence, and meeting weekly to reach consensus.
Once a review is complete, TRR welcomes publisher feedback and publishers are granted early access with ample time to respond to a review before it appears on the website.
TEA partners with education service centers (ESCs) to verify that quality reviews contain sufficient evidence to support indicator evaluations.
