The STAAR is taken by most Texas public school students in the spring of each year during grades three through twelve. The test is administered over a period of one or two weeks, depending on the school district. Students taking the STAAR are tested on math and reading. Writing tests are also issued in the fourth and seventh grades. Science tests on the STAAR are given in grades five and eight. A social studies test is scheduled in grade eight. High school students are required to pass five End Of Course (EOC) exams, including Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology, and U.S. History. Students must achieve satisfactory scores on all five exams in order to graduate high school.
