STAAR Released Test Questions

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) releases two types of test questions for the STAAR program — sample questions and test forms.

  • Sample test questions are small subsets of test questions released from the STAAR test banks. These test questions may have been previously administered.
  • A test form is a set of released test questions previously administered together to Texas students, which reflects the STAAR test blueprints.
