NEW STAAR BLUEPRINTS

Since the passage of HB 743 in 2015, STAAR test blueprints for grades 3–8 have been reduced by removing from 5 to 14 test items on each assessment. The decrease in the number of questions for the STAAR grades 3–8 assessments was spread proportionally across reporting categories for each test. The change in the number of test questions under each reporting category can be seen in the updated STAAR test blueprints available on the STAAR Resources webpage (http://tea.texas.gov/student.assessment/staar/).
