High school students in the state of Texas must pass a STAAR (or State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) test at the conclusion of their Biology I course in order to earn a diploma. If you or your child struggle in biology, Varsity Tutors can help you find a local Biology STAAR test tutor to help you work toward your academic goals in the subject.
The Biology STAAR test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions split into five categories of 10 questions each:
- Cell Structure and Function
- Mechanisms of Genetics
- Biological Evolution and Classification
- Biological Processes and Systems
- Interdependence Within Environmental Systems
In addition, at least 40 percent of the questions test a student's knowledge of scientific processes as well as one of the topics above. This can seem like a lot, but Biology STAAR test tutoring sessions allow students to review only what they need to. If you are confident in your knowledge of evolution but struggle with the intricacies of genetics, your tutor can concentrate on the latter to make time spent studying more efficient.
