State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®)

STAAR LogoThe State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) includes the following assessment programs: STAAR, STAAR Spanish, and STAAR Alternate 2.

As mandated by the Texas Education Agency, students in grades 3 through 12 are required to take part in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness program.

Students first enrolled in grade 9 or below in the 2011–12 school year are required to take the STAAR end-of-course assessments for courses in which they are enrolled as part of their graduation requirements. Those students no longer take TAKS.

The STAAR EOC assessments test high school students for college readiness and produce performance labels that indicate a student’s mastery of the course’s standards. The end-of-course tests assess the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for a given course. In addition to passing courses, a score of satisfactory or above is required to graduate.
