If your instruction looks like this (and we know for many students it does)…
…then your student(s) should be taking STAAR online!
Why? Because these supports are only available in the STAAR Online Content and Language Supports.
Sure, you might be thinking about the potential for technology glitches. Online testing might feel risky, but the benefits outweigh the risks. When students receive the same supports on STAAR that they need and routinely use in the classroom their outcomes will benefit.
For another perspective, please click to see this side-by-side document: STAAR Online Benefits. Then, get with your team to consider classroom instruction, student data from STAAR Online released tests, interim assessments, and other online assignments to make the best decision for each student.
