STAAR for Students with Disabilities and English Language Learners
The Texas Assessment Program is a statewide testing program that includes the STAAR, STAAR Spanish, and STAAR Alternate 2. STAAR L and STAAR A will be administered for the last time in December 2016; however, the embedded supports that were available on these assessments are now individual embedded online accommodations on STAAR for eligible students. Information about these embedded supports and other accommodations, or Designated Supports, can be found on the Accommodation Resources webpage.
