STAAR refers to State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness. It is a Texas state student testing program for the annual assessment of students. STAAR program measures the performance of students and assesses their readiness to step up to the next academic level.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas suspended STAAR for 2019 and 2020. But in 2021, State education officials of Texas have decided to conduct the STAAR exam at an authentic and monitored site.
