In the Spring of 2012, the former student assessment standardized test, TAKS, was replaced with the more rigorous, STAAR. "STAAR will represent a more unified, comprehensive assessment program that wil incorporate more rigorous college and career readiness standards," a report from the Texas Education states. In just a few weeks, students across the state of Texas will once again be taking the STAAR test.
How can you as a parent help your student prepare for the STAAR test?
1) Attendance - Make sure your student is on time and in school EVERYDAY
2) Good Health - Make sure your students gets good: Breakfast, Sleep, and Exercise
3) Practice - The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has STAAR released questions on their website you can use for understanding or reinforce material.
