The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness Modified (STAAR® Modified) is an alternate assessment based on modified academic achievement standards. This assessment is intended for a small number of students receiving special education services who meet the participation requirements.
The STAAR Modified assessments will be administered for the final time during the 2013-2014 assessment cycle. The U.S. Department of Education has informed states that assessments based on modified standards for students served by special education cannot be used for accountability purposes after the 2013-2014 school year. Further information regarding plans for the inclusion of this population of students in the general assessment program beginning in the 2014-2015 school year will be forthcoming.
