What is the STAAR?
The State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) is a state testing program that launched in Spring 2012. The purpose of the STAAR test is to measure what students have learned and how they are able to apply their skills and knowledge as specified in TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, the Texas curriculum standard).
Test-prep isn’t an event, it’s a process! With ReadTheory you can confidently prepare students for the reading and english portions of the STAAR assessment.
Yes! Getting started is easy. Deploy the pre-test to your students, identify critical reading proficiency gaps, and get comprehensive feedback in real-time. Most importantly, eliminate test anxiety, and even make it (dare we say) FUN with competitions and badges. With the right preparation, the STAAR is an opportunity for your students to show off what they know!
