STAAR Testing

STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) began in the 2011-2012 school  year and replaced TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills). STAAR is administered to students in grades 3 through 8 and to students taking high school level courses in Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and U.S. History. The assessments are based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. 

The STAAR is available in a variety of formats to serve students who are in the general education program, the special education program, or who are English language learners. 

Students will receive annual assessments for:

  • reading and mathematics, grades 3-8
  • writing at grades 4 and 7
  • science at grades 5 and 8
  • social studies at grade 8
  • end-of-course (EOC) assessments for Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and U.S. History
