• Guide to Navigating the Upcoming STAAR Testing

     

    In anticipation of the upcoming STAAR Testing, we provide parents with invaluable resources and effective study strategies. These resources equip parents with the tools to support their child's success and confidence on test day.

    You may be familiar with the STAAR test. But what is it, and why is it important?

     

    STAAR is short for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness. The test is important because it shows what your student has learned and is a part of their school’s rating. It’s just one way to measure student learning. During the 2022-23 school year, some significant changes happened with how the STAAR is organized. In this article, let’s look at how the test is organized when it happens and what parents and guardians can do to help their child be ready for the STAAR.

     

    What is STAAR?

    The STAAR is a big test that measures how well students have learned a subject during the school year. It gives teachers and parents valuable information to help their students do better in school.

     

    Here are several reasons why the STAAR test is important:

    It checks to see if students understand their lessons.

    It helps teachers see if the way they teach their students is working.

    It finds students who might need extra help.

    It helps teachers plan future lessons to support their students.


    All students in Texas need to take the STAAR. Your child’s participation matters. Their score shows how well the school is doing to help students learn.

     

    Other things to keep in mind about STAAR:

    STAAR doesn’t decide if a student moves to the next grade.

    Examples of questions and answers are available before the STAAR so students can see them.

    The new question types let students show what they know in a better way.

    The STAAR test is taken online.
