Are you a parent or guardian and want to check the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test results for the 2023-2024 school year? You’re at the right place. In this guide, you’ll learn the procedures and requirements needed to check STAAR test results.
Once the result is released, parents can access their child’s scores online and will also be able to view their child’s entire state testing history.
What is STAAR?
STAAR stands for State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, which is the state’s student testing program. The assessments are based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, which are the state curriculum standards. Beginning in grade 3 through high school graduation, students will be tested in the core subject areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies.
Benefits of STAAR?
STAAR tests show whether a student has mastered specific knowledge of a core subject at
a certain grade level. Test results should provide parents assurance that their child is prepared to enter the next grade level within their school district or any Texas district. Finally, the results provide educators and administrators with uniform information about where to focus resources – especially in the core subjects being taught.
How is STAAR Administered?
STAAR assessments for grades 3-8 are administered in a paper format only. The high school STAAR end-of-course assessments are offered in both online and paper formats.
