What to look for when choosing your STAAR test practice and instruction:

Give your students a program proven to prepare them for the STAAR

STAAR Ready Other

Does it include the latest updates that match the current TEA blueprints?

Does it provide solid instructional support for test preparation materials?

Are the TEKS standards clearly identified for each instructional lesson?

Is it more difficult to differentiate between the choices in the STAAR multiple-choice answers?

Does it provide rigorous multi-step practice problems to prepare students for the test?

Has each book been completely revised (and not just blackline masters)?

Is the recommended instruction driven from the data provided by the practice tests?

Do the assessment results provide a clear indication of how your students would perform if they took the STAAR today?
