Information about STAAR
The 2011-2012 school years marks the end of the TAKS test and the beginning of the State’s new assessment test: STAAR (The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness.) In grades 3–8, STARR will assess the same grades and subjects as were assessed on TAKS. For high school students, general subject-area TAKS tests will be replaced with twelve STAAR end-of-course (EOC) assessments.
Several aspects of the new test are still being determined. The Texas Education Agency has created a website with more information on the STAAR. The STAAR Q&As is available on the Student Assessment website. Questions and answers will be added as additional decisions are finalized.
