This product has been updated to include all question stems from the 2017 STAAR Release Test.
This resource serves as a handy guide to all of the STAAR stems that have been used since 2013. They are categorized by TEKS and in chronological order from most recent to least recent.
You can use this list to aid in creating your own STAAR-aligned questions or use it to look for patterns in the questioning format. By looking at all question stems from the same TEKS, you can easily identify academic vocabulary which will be necessary for student mastery.
While this resource serves more as a teacher resource, it is important for students to take ownership of their learning and understand the different types of questions they are required to answer. By understanding what kind of question they are looking at, they can better determine how to tackle that question. If you are looking for a student-centered resource that can be used in stations or in a game format, please check out our STAAR-stem Sort resource in our TpT store! If you’re looking for an example of how to use these stems to create STAAR aligned activities, check out these other resources!
