STAAR A Resources Archive

State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) A, an accommodated version of STAAR, was offered as an online assessment in the same grades and subjects as STAAR. It was administered for the last time in December 2016. The passing standards for STAAR A were the same as any STAAR test. STAAR A provided embedded supports designed to help students with disabilities access the content being assessed. These embedded supports included visual aids, graphic organizers, clarifications of construct-irrelevant terms, and text-to-speech functionality. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) archived the files listed below because they were obsolete. To view current materials, please visit the Information on the State Assessments for Students with Disabilities page.

Overview of STAAR A 

Several resources were provided to assist educators in understanding and explaining to parents STAAR A. A link to the STAAR Resources webpage is provided since STAAR A is also the general assessment and shared the same assessed curriculum, test blueprints, academic achievement standards, progress measures, and other resources as STAAR.

    Student Eligibility Requirements
