STAAR Released Test Questions

 Student Assessment Home | Student Assessment Directory | Contact Student Assessment  

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) releases two types of test questions for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) program—sample questions and test forms. Sample test questions are small subsets of test questions released from the STAAR test banks. These test questions may have been previously administered. A test form is a set of released test questions previously administered together to Texas students which reflects the STAAR test blueprints.

To see all available STAAR resources, visit the STAAR Resources webpage.

STAAR reading tests contain varying amounts of authentic published texts. Copyright permission for these texts is obtained from publishers by the testing contractor on behalf of TEA. These copyright agreements may or may not include permission for a wider, non-secure release after testing. If material that was used during testing could not be included in a released test form due to specific copyright permissions, text is provided in the form that indicates where the source material originated.
