    2022-2023 STAAR TESTING
    As required by House Bill 3261, STAAR will be administered online beginning in the 2022-2023 school year. The STAAR online testing platform offers all students multiple online tools to support the testing process. In addition, the STAAR assessments no longer have a time limit. Students are expected to complete STAAR tests in about three hours; however, any student who needs additional time may continue testing until the end of the school day.   

     

    To support students with the online testing transition, the district began online testing implementation in the 2021-2022 school year for all STAAR tested grade levels. Students will continue to be provided multiple opportunities to experience online testing platforms through District Learning Assessments (DLAs), STAAR Interims for specific subjects, and STAAR practice tests.  Parents are encouraged to access the Practice Tests Login located on the Texas Assessment website to explore practice tests. Practice Tests Login is found under the section How to Help Prepare Your Child. STAAR testing dates are posted on the Department of Research, Assessment, and Accountability website. For questions regarding local and state assessments, contact your Campus Testing Coordinator.
