Staar test download: Secure browser application installation files have been released for the school year 2020–2021 and need to be accessible through STAAR online test and tutorial practice, STAAR® interim evaluations, and STAAR online administration. The installation files of the update application can be downloaded.
Before installing the latest updated version, previous versions of Windows, Mac OS, and Linux applications must be removed (3.19.0). Districts should enable automatic application upgrades so that browsers are updated on iOS and Chromebooks automatically, as necessary.
On the launch of the previously installed version of the application, the updated version of iOS (2.80.0) and Chromebook (2.65.0) is automatically updated.
Online tutorials, tests, and operational reviews are available via the STAAR Online Testing Platform for State of Texas Academic Readiness Assessments (STAAR®).
The tutorials and practice tests provide students and staff with the opportunity to learn about the online test environment and embedded tools. The tutorials and practice tests are expected to be completed before each student who participates in online testing.
