5 POINTS OF STAAR

What do parents/families need to know? The new tests are:

  • Tougher than TAKS.

  • Linked to high school graduation & college eligibility.

  • Designed to predict success in high school, college and beyond – as early as 3rd grade.

  • NOT the only indicator of your child’s readiness and success.
