The new CSRs will be available online beginning June 13, 2017 for STAAR EOC and June 30, 2017 for STAAR 3-8.</p><p>On June 13th, TEA is also launching a new CSR website, which will include item-level analysis for each question on the STAAR, informational videos, and links to additional resources. For the first time, parents and teachers who log in will be able to see actual test questions from the current year's STAAR exam. They will also find information on boosting reading levels and developing student-specific summer reading lists. </p></div>
