STAAR Alternate 2 Overview

  • Online
  • 6 CPE Credits

TEA has developed the STAAR Alternate 2 assessment to assess students in grades 3–8 and high school who have significant cognitive disabilities and are receiving special education services. STAAR Alternate 2 administrators are not required to complete this training in addition to that required for administrators of all other forms of STAAR.

In this optional training we will discuss:

  • Participation Requirements
  • Allowable Accommodations for STAAR Alternate 2
  • Sample Test Questions
  • Testing Timelines
  • Planning instruction using the Essence Statements, TEKS Curriculum Framework, TEKS Vertical Alignments, and the Instructional Decision-Making Guides for accessing the general curriculum

Training will be held online over Zoom.
