The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will release in PDF format the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) and STAAR Spanish tests that were administered during spring 2019. 

The tests, answer keys, and item rationales will be posted on the Student Assessment STAAR Released Test Questions page of the TEA Website as they become available during the month of October.

The release this year was delayed due to cost. A significant amount of current funding is supporting new item development for future programs mandated by recently enacted legislation. However, in response to educator feedback about the usefulness of the tests in preparing students, the agency is providing a scaled-back release that includes PDF versions of the assessments. This year there will be no online STAAR Practice Test, and the ability to order 2019 printed released tests will not be available. 

For questions about the 2019 STAAR tests, email Student.Assessment@tea.texas.gov or call 512-463-9536.
