Learn about new STAAR test item types that will be used on future STAAR exams. In the 2022-2023 school year, 25% of STAAR questions will be non-multiple choice. Examples for new Science STAAR test items include multiselect, multipart, drag and drop, hot spot, text entry, and short constructed response. EduSmart resources already use many of these new item types, so your students will have plenty of advance preparation for the new STAAR format.
