Is there a time limit for STAAR assessments?

Yes. All STAAR assessments have a four-hour time limit except for English I, English II, and
English III, which have a five-hour time limit. The time limits were established as the maximum
amount of time allowed to complete the assessment, although most students should be able to
complete the assessment in less time. Accommodations for extra time within the same day or an
extra day are available for students who meet eligibility criteria.

Once a student has completed the test, he or she may be allowed to leave the testing room or
may be provided an instructional activity. More information can be found in the STAAR Policies
and Procedures document at http://tea.texas.gov/student.assessment/manuals/dccm/.
