Online Practice Tests
The online practice tests are designed to familiarize students with the online testing environment, the available tools, and the various types of test questions. These tests provide students with an opportunity to interact with the test interface, respond to questions, and locate and use available tools.
The practice tests are released tests that have been previously administered and are available for STAAR and TELPAS. In addition, small sets of test questions (smaller than an actual test) are available as practice sets. These practice sets are used to introduce students to new types of test questions like the new STAAR item types. Access the online practice tests and practice sets by clicking the Practice Tests Login card.
STAAR Released Test Questions
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) releases two types of test questions for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) program—sample questions and test forms. Sample test questions are small subsets of test questions released from the STAAR test banks. These test questions may have been previously administered. A test form is a set of released test questions previously administered together to Texas students which reflects the STAAR test blueprints.
