In the spring, amid a controversial legislative session for state standardized tests, the Texas Education Agency announced that it would soon release the 2013 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) exams it had previously kept confidential. We have collected all of the exams for grades three through eight, along with the answer keys. They are available to download below.
Each grade's "test answers" file contains the key for the various questions along with a blueprint page for each category of tests. Blueprints correspond with the "reporting category" on the answer key and are used to group questions into broader categories.
