Is the Staar test mandatory?

Like the TAKS, the STAAR is mandatory every year, unlike the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills, which called for one-time testing for every student. The STAAR also has a new time limit, four hours (except for the English I/II EOc, which have 5 hrs), unlike its predecessors, TAKS and TAAS.

Can you be exempt from Staar test?

State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR).
Unfortunately, according to the Texas Legislature and the Texas Education Agency, parents do not actually have a right to “opt- out” of testing. Specifically, Texas Education Code 39.023(a) requires “all students” to be assessed with the appropriate test.

Can you opt out of Staar test?

The Texas Education Agency states that a parental right to opt a child out of STAAR doesn't exist. Section 26.010 of the Texas Education Code says, "A parent is not entitled to remove the parent's child from a class or other school activity to avoid a test." And not all STAAR tests are created equal.

Why is the Staar test important?

Although most students do not like taking the tests, they are pretty important. They decide if we move on to the next grade, and help us improve for future tests. Social studies and math are the most common with students when it comes to the hardest STAAR test because of the things students have to remember.
