STAAR Administration Testing Modes


The Texas Education Agency provides ALL STAAR assessments in both paper and online testing modes.  For all high school End-of-Course STAAR tests, the same test can be administered either on paper with a test booklet OR online with a computer, with or without accommodations. 

Students with decision-making committees, parents & students will address test mode decisions during appropriate committee meetings.

  • access the STAAR Administration Test Mode Preference Form on the LISD website (instructions in letter below),
  • complete and sign the form, and
  • return the form to Christy Loafman, Campus Testing Coordinator, at CHS by the deadlines in the letter.
