We have recently created the STAAR and STAAR Modified combined blueprints for all tested subjects, grades 3-8. These documents allow you to compare the number of items, performance tasks, and assessed TEKS for both the STAAR and STAAR Modified assessment, all on a single page.
It’s important to note the Readiness Standards for each STAAR and STAAR Modified assessment will make up 60-70% of what is assessed, the other 30-40% will consist of the listed Supporting Standards. The Readiness Standards will always be tested each year, the Supporting Standards on the other hand, will rotate from year to year.
All of the blueprints below do not include the embedded field test items, only the number of items that will be officially scored. To learn more about the basic components of the STAAR assessment, click here to watch the STAAR Overview video.
