About the Exam
High school students in Texas will take this assessment as a way to prove that what they have learned in Algebra II classes is in line with state educational standards and guidelines. While this is an end-of-course (EOC) test, as of 2016 the STAAR Algebra II test has been deemed optional for districts to use.
During the test, which is offered three times throughout the school year, students will have about 240 minutes to complete the questions. In total there are 50 questions, 45 of which are multiple-choice, and the other five questions require students to provide gridded-responses. Students may have the opportunity to take the test online or on paper. Overall test scores are used to assess whether student learning goals and district standards are being met.
Preparing & Registering for the STAAR Algebra II Test
With our full range of test prep chapters, you can be ready for any topic addressed on the STAAR Algebra II test, and you can start your study sessions by first assessing how much you remember. To do so, use our self-assessment quizzes that are available with every lesson we offer. These multiple-choice quizzes instantly allow you to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. If you score low, open up that lesson and get in some solid study time. The quizzes also help you practice math concepts as you cram for the test.
As this is an assessment test administered by the state of Texas, formal registration is not required. Students currently enrolled in Algebra II courses should be eligible to take the STAAR Algebra II test. As this is an optional test, not all districts will have it available. If the test is not available for your district, you may need to speak directly to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for further assistance.
