The Texas Education Agency releases two types of test questions for the STAAR test on a set schedule: test forms and sample questions. A test form is a set of released test questions previously administered together to Texas students. Sample test questions are small subsets of test questions released from the STAAR test banks. These test questions may have been previously administered to Texas students. A subset of STAAR Modified test questions is being released for grades 3, 4, 5 and 7 reading, and grades 4 and 7 writing.

The Texas Education Agency released the first test forms administered in the spring for each general STAAR assessment in 2013 and 2014. The agency will follow a similar release schedule for 2015 and 2016 and then every third year thereafter.

 The Texas Education Agency releases STAAR assessments on a regular basis to assist educators and parents in better understanding the expectations of STAAR assessments and the rigor associated with them. To access and view all STAAR assessments released for 2014, visit the Texas Education Agency website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/staar/testquestions/.
