STAAR Alternate 2 TEKS Curriculum Framework Documents

Student Assessment Home | Student Assessment Directory | Contact Student Assessment

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) Alternate 2 Curriculum Framework documents list the reporting categories, knowledge and skills statements, and student expectations tested by STAAR in each grade and subject or high school course. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) summarizes each knowledge and skills statement into an essence statement that serves as the connection between the grade-level Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and the online system. The Curriculum Framework documents also list access points in the form of prerequisite skills that link to the students expectations on the Vertical Alignment documents for each grade and subject or high school course.   

Teachers can use the Curriculum Framework to target instruction for the ten essence statements assessed each year. Teachers can determine where each individual student is performing on the framework document for each essence statement and focus instruction to move them to the highest student expectation attainable for a given year.
