We understand the importance of the STAAR test in 2019. The State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness tests are a vital part of your child’s education. You might be asking yourself the question: how can I make my child’s STAAR test preparation more streamlined for 2020? Or maybe you’re asking yourself: will they pass the STAAR test in 2020?

According to an online survey conducted by Atomik Research, 79% of parents think STAAR tests put too much pressure on their kids. Worse than that, 1 in 3 parents feel like they lack the support to help their child with test preparation. Is this you?

That’s why we’ve put together some handy tips below to help with preparing for the STAAR test in 2020. We have lots of free resources that will help students test and grow so they can ace their tests.

Build confidence

The main thing to remember is that where your child is now, with the right preparation and strategy they can succeed at passing the STAAR test next year. As a parent you can feel confident that with the right plan your child will do well.

“The more you support your kids and help them feel confident the better they’ll perform. We can help instill the confidence kids need on standardized tests because we’re not just helping prepare them academically but also helping them believe in themselves,” said Lydia Goss, Assistant Director at our Alliance Town Center location.

Now we’ve built your confidence as a parent you’ll need to see the importance of doing the same for your child. Confident learners means proactive learners that want to and will succeed. So the first thing you will want to do for your child is to give them the confidence they need. That means majoring on the achievements and minoring on the mistakes.


Free STAAR Test Assessments

Our enrichment and tutoring centers across the Dallas area offer free assessments to all parents of STAAR test takers. If you’d like to know where your child is in their learning then this is a great place to start. Even better, we can offer you a fully tailored program to see your child succeed in their academic studies whether it’s the STAAR tests or their favorite subjects.


Take a practice STAAR test

The unknown is always a scary thing! That’s why we have short sample quizzes available on our STAAR & Test Prep page. Your children can get a feel for the questions before they come in for an assessment in one of our centers. Using a TEKS aligned curriculum during our in-center assessment allows us to identify areas for development.
