The STAAR test will be here before you know it! So start reaching for the STAARS! STAAR practice tests that is:)
The STAAR Test of 2017 really took some by surprise. Most versions of the test did not contain a selection of a poem with questions and answers as previous tests before. The released test shows four selections in which 3 were nonfiction, and one was realistic fiction.
So. . . I have done the same. I have created a practice assessment with identical TEKS represented, with four genre selections.
This unit contains –
1 realistic fiction selection (Up In Smoke)
1 Nonfiction biographical selection (The Life of Ronald W. Reagan)
2 Nonfiction informational selections (Seeing Something Fishy / Segways Personal Transporters)
Recording sheet for answers
TEKS provided for each question
Practice makes perfect, so I hope you have great success with this practice assessment.

Be sure to look for my many other STAAR Reading, Math, and Writing Practice Assessments in my store.
I appreciate your business, following, and feedback!
