Admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committees are required to use the participation requirements to determine if the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness Alternate (STAAR® Alternate) is the appropriate assessment for a student.
Beginning with the 2013-2014 STAAR Alternate administration, the ARD committee, rather than the test administrator, will be required to make the decision for the complexity level and/or the combinations of levels that will be used for each STAAR Alternate assessment. These decisions must be recorded on the "STAAR Alternate Participation Requirements" state-required document. The test administrator must abide by the complexity-level decisions when implementing the assessment.
To see all available STAAR Alternate resources, visit the STAAR Alternate Resources webpage.
