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.
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 shares the
same assessed curriculum, test blueprints, academic achievement standards, progress
measures, and other resources as STAAR.
A student must have meet STAAR A Eligibility Requirements for
each applicable subject-area assessment in order to take STAAR A.
