    Reading and Mathematics, grades 3–8
    Science, grades 5 and 8
    Social Studies, grade 8

    STAAR Redesign

    House Bill (HB) 3906, passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in 2019, addresses several components related to assessments and administration, including expanding input from educators and providing more flexibility at the campus level for test administration.

    • Transitioning to online assessments by the 2022–23 school year
    • Adding new item types and capping the percentage of multiple-choice items
    • Eliminating stand-alone writing assessments for grades 4 and 7 and incorporating cross-curricular passages to assess new reading language arts Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
