What is the Texas STAAR Assessment?

The Texas STAAR assessment is a standardized test that is used to measure student achievement in Texas. The test covers a wide range of topics, including reading, mathematics, science, and social studies. The STAAR test is administered to students in grades 3-8 and end-of-course (EOC) exams for high school students. The STAAR test is designed to provide information about how well students are mastering the state’s curriculum standards.
