12 History Lesson  TABS – Basic Skills (1980)  TEAMS – Minimum Skills (1986)  TAAS – Academic Skills (1999)  TAKS – Knowledge and Skills (2003)  STAAR – State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (2012)

13 STAAR will be based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) just as TAKS was. However, STAAR will focus on fewer skills and address those skills in a deeper manner.

14 STAAR assessments will test Content students studied in that year. Focus on TEKS that are most critical to assess. Measure academic performance of students as they progress from elementary to middle to high school.

15 More test questions and more rigorous. Emphasis on “readiness” standards, which are considered most important for success for the grade level or subject that follows, and ultimately, college and career readiness.
