State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness

What is STAAR?

STAAR is the new state assessment program that begins in spring 2012. STARR is the acronym for The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness and will replace (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) TAKS, the current state assessment program for students in grades 3-8 and the entering freshman class of 2011-2012.

Do all kids take STAAR?

First time freshmen in 2011-2012 will be the first graduating class required to meet the standards on STAAR as well as pass their classes to meet graduation requirements. These students will have to pass twelve subject level course exams (EOC’s) in order to graduate. Three examinations each in language arts, science, math and social studies will be administered based upon course enrollment. Requirements for student promotion in grades 5 & 8 will remain the same as under TAKS. Passing the reading and math tests will be required for promotion to the next grade level.

Testing in grades 3-8 for STAAR will be the same subject tests as under the former testing system.

How is STAAR Different from TAKS?

STAAR will be more rigorous as it is aligned to Texas’ College and Career Readiness Standards as well as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS, which will remain the curriculum for Texas). The majority of the new STAAR assessments will test content students studied that year, as opposed to testing content studied over multiple years. Doing so will strengthen the alignment between what is taught and what is tested for a given course of study.
 


State Assessment

State Curriculum Standards - TEKS


 

The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), comprise the state-mandated curriculum guidelines that establish what every student, from elementary school through high school, should know and be able to do. They were developed to comply with §28.002(c) and (d) of the Texas Education Code.
