STAAR A Resources Archive

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 on December 2016. The passing standards for STAAR A are the same as any STAAR test. STAAR A will provide embedded supports designed to help students with disabilities access the content being assessed. These embedded supports include visual aids, graphic organizers, clarifications of construct-irrelevant terms, and text-to-speech functionality. TEA archived the files listed below because they are obsolete. To view current materials, please visit the Information on State Assessments for Students with Disabilities page.
