How many days are students taking STAAR assessments?

In general, students spend the following number of days testing during each school year: two days
in grades 3 and 6; three days in grades 4, 5, and 7; and four days in 8. Due to SSI promotion
requirements, some students in grades 5 and 8 may need additional testing days for retests.

The number of testing days for high school students is dependent on when students take specific
high school courses and whether students need to retest. In most cases, a high school student
would have five days of testing throughout his or her high school years—three in grade 9, one in
grade 10, and one in grade 11.
