Access the STAAR Toolkit for Educators Grades 3-4-5
The Texas Education Agency has redesigned the STAAR exam to be implemented in the 2022-2023 school year. Lexia®has created a toolkit to ensure Texas students and educators are prepared for the STAAR redesign.
The STAAR toolkits for grades 3-5 empower educators to continue the best practices of teaching, while spotlighting components of Core5®Reading that may prove helpful in readying students for the new format of the STAAR® exam, and providing creative hints and tips along the way.
The redesigned Reading Language Arts STAAR will be administered online, including more cross-curricular passages and seven new item types. In addition, the fourth-grade and seventh-grade writing assessments will be eliminated, while written response items will be integrated into the RLA assessment. The separate fourth-grade and seventh-grade writing assessments will be eliminated, while written response items will be integrated in the RLA assessment.
Lexia’s core values are rooted in the best practices of instruction, which include quality teaching for all students to ensure a lifetime of literacy. Lexia also acknowledges the reality of high-stakes state assessments, the role they play in the lives of students and educators, and the importance of going beyond simple test preparation to identify and address gaps students may have in foundational skills.
