Episode V – The Birth of STAAR
After nearly 30 years of state testing, Texas announces the “Next Generation” of tests. Beginning in TAKS (the descendant of TABS, TEAMS and TAAS) will be replaced with STAAR (the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness). STAAR will be significantly more rigorous than TAKS. The change comes just as Texas approaches the 2014 deadline under AYP to reach 100% proficiency. Music Clip – Theme from Star Wars – John Williams;

Question #2 In order to prepare for STAAR, we will have to rewrite all of our lessons and common assessments. 9:05 Page 3

Readiness Supporting Essential for success in current grade level or course. Although introduced at current grade level or course, they may be emphasized in a subsequent year. They are important to preparedness for next grade level or course. Although reinforced in current grade level or course, they may be emphasized in previous year. They support college and career readiness. They play a role in preparing students for the next grade level or course but not central role. They address broad and deep ideas. They address narrowly defined ideas. 9:45

PERFORM each activity as if you were an elementary student. RECORD your answers on a separate piece of paper not on the laminated copies. 10:10-10:40

Is this a trick question?
STAAR test items will contain a greater number of items that have a higher cognitive complexity and will be developed to more closely match the cognitive complexity level evident in the TEKS; therefore, it is crucial that teachers focus more closely on the content of their grade level/course. 12:50 Page 3

Elementary Math Varying the Context of the Content (example) 3.11B Use standard units to find the perimeter of a shape If the perimeter of the rectangular sand box is 46 feet, what is the length of the missing side? 16 inches What is the perimeter for the given rectangle? 18 feet Given the perimeter and one length, determine the missing side Given two lengths, determine the perimeter 2 inches Mrs. Green wants to tile around her swimming pool. How many feet of tile will she need to complete the project? Utilizing your ruler, measure the perimeter of the given polygon to the nearest inch. 1:45-1:50 Given an irregular shape with not all of the sides, determine the perimeter Use a measuring tool to determine the perimeter of an irregular shape Page 33
