STAAR at the Secondary School Level

Math

Seventy-five percent of STAAR test questions will incorporate underlying processes and mathematical tools.

Science

Forty percent of the STAAR tests will focus on scientific investigation and reasoning.

Social Studies

Tests will require students to analyze and interpret complex, real world graphics, such as those printed in a newspaper or satellite images and geospatial data.

Reading

The STAAR assessments will require analytical skills and an application of knowledge.

Writing

A number of questions will focus on revising a document, since revisions require a student to have a depth of knowledge of sentence structures, patterns, and usage.
