House Bill (HB) 3906, 86th Texas Legislature, 2019, required the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to investigate and develop a transition plan for legislative approval to administer all State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) tests electronically by the 2022–23 school year. House Bill (HB) 3261, 87th Texas Legislature, 2021, requires state assessments to be administered online by the 2022–2023 school year. Online testing allows students to receive accommodations like those they get in the classroom, provides faster test results, improves test operations, and allows for new non-multiple-choice questions. This transition will require nearly all students to be assessed online, with the exceptions of students taking the STAAR Alternate 2 assessment and students who require accommodations that cannot be provided online. To learn more about the transition to the online testing visit the STAAR Redesign webpage.
