What are the STAAR interim assessments?

The STAAR interim assessments are offered as a free optional online tool for school districts and open-enrollment charter schools. The tool provides actionable data to help educators monitor progress and help predict student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®).

The STAAR Interim Assessments are:

  • a way to monitor academic improvement, especially for students who are consistently performing below grade-level
  • a tool to inform interventions for students or groups of students based on predictions of STAAR performance
  • a benchmarking instrument at the campus or district level

The STAAR Interim Assessments are NOT:

  • an item bank intended for building classroom quizzes and assignments
  • a source of test questions for tutoring or small-group instruction
  • a classroom formative assessment tool designed to provide performance data on specific student expectations
