STAAR A Resources
The STAAR A tutorials are designed to be administered in a proctored setting. Prior to administering the tutorial to students, you should familiarize yourself with the STAAR A online student tutorial administration directions. These directions are designed to take into account the limited experience some students may have with standardized testing in an online format. You may adjust the language and specificity of the directions to the needs of your students.
EOC Student Tutorial (ePAT posted 10/22/14)
The STAAR A student tutorials are delivered in the browser-based test-delivery interface, TestNav. They do not need to be downloaded or installed. The STAAR A student tutorials use the browser plug-in Adobe Flash Player. The tutorial will launch in your default Internet browser. The tutorials include a sampling of STAAR A test selections and questions in all subjects for grades 3–5, grades 6–8, and EOC. Since the tutorials contain text-to-speech audio, headphones may be needed if more than one student is using the tutorials in the same room.
NOTE: The tutorials are not scored, and no information about the student's responses is captured or displayed. However, an answer key in PDF format is available for your reference at the following links.
