If you are like me, it is difficult to find a quality benchmark for STAAR. This is a full benchmark test for English 1 students who will be taking the STAAR. Includes 30 questions including reading questions for fiction and non-fiction, revising and editing questions, a single short answer response question, and an expository composition prompt. It includes answer boxes for the short answer question and the composition as well as 2 partial pages for "thinking out" the composition. An answer key is included complete with reporting categories, tek #'s.The only things you will need to supply are an optional answer documents for bubbling answers and a copy of the short story "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant which is in most English 1 textbooks or easily found online. Feel free to send me any questions you have. Made by Marie Osborne of Seeds of Knowledge. ON THE WAY: a drama benchmark and some for English 2.
