STAAR:  The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, commonly referred to as its acronym STAAR, are a series of state-mandated standardized tests used in Texas public primary and secondary schools to assess a student's achievements and knowledge learned in the grade level. The goal is to ensure that all students receive what they need to be academically successful. STAAR tests curriculum taught from the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, which is taught by public schools.
