State of texas assessments of academic readiness

  1. 1. State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Assessment Design Attributes Sara Elizabeth Perez EDIM510
  2. 2. Focus <ul><li>The STAAR program is designed to focus assessments on: </li></ul><ul><li>Readiness Standards (RS) </li></ul><ul><li>Supporting Standards (SS) </li></ul><ul><li>Readiness standards will be emphasized annually. </li></ul><ul><li>Supporting standards will be emphasized randomly each year. </li></ul>
  3. 3. General Characteristics Readiness Standards Supporting Standards • essential for success in the current grade/course • important for preparedness for the next grade/course • support college and career readiness • necessitate in-depth instruction • address significant content and concepts • introduced in the current grade or course, but may be emphasized in a subsequent year • reinforced in the current grade or course, but may be emphasized in a previous year • play a role in preparing students for the next grade or course, but not a central role • address more narrowly defined content and concepts
  4. 4. Clarity <ul><li>The majority of the assessments will test content studied that year, as opposed to testing content studied over multiple years. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Depth <ul><li>A primary feature of STAAR’s test design is a focus on preparedness for success in subsequent grades or courses and, ultimately, for college and career. This requires the tests to emphasize depth rather than breadth in assessing student expectations. </li></ul><ul><li>The rigor of items will be increased by assessing skills at a greater depth and level of cognitive complexity. </li></ul>
