About STAAR Test Maker
Now used in more than 300 Texas districts, STAAR Test Maker’s living item bank is constantly refreshed and updated. Our highly trained Item Development Team carefully analyzes all information released by the Texas Education Agency about the TEKS, the STAAR, and all things assessment. Our team then applies this knowledge to curate and grow the item bank.
We perform these analyses constantly to make sure our item bank is always up to date, and we pay very careful attention to the feedback we receive from our teachers and assessment specialists to guide us in our continued development of our living STAAR Test Maker item bank. Our methodology ensures that our items aligned to the TEKS and the STAAR in format, wording, and rigor.
STAAR Test Maker is a supported product of Key Data Systems, an industry leader in educational psychometric services and standards-based assessments.
