STAAR Test Redesigned for 2023

 

Beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, all students will take the STAAR test online unless they qualify for a special paper administration. Further, the test will look different for students. The redesigned State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®)  will prioritize cross-curricular passages in Reading Language Arts (RLA) tests that reference topics that students have learned about in other classes. All the redesigned STAAR RLA tests will reflect the updated TEKS and will include writing where students compose text-based responses. This element of the redesign acknowledges the interconnectedness of reading and writing. The redesigned summative test will add newnon-multiple-choice questions that are designed to be more like questions teachers ask in class. The transition to a full online administration will provide students with robust accommodations that ensures equity with how students are tested.
