SAN ANTONIO – Students, get your number two pencils ready! STAAR testing resumes on Monday.

The STAAR test, or the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness program, assesses students for reading and math, along with writing, the sciences and social studies. 

On Monday, third-grade through seventh-grade students will take the math portion of the exam and then on Tuesday, students will take the reading portion.

Students who need to re-take the test in grades five and eight will also have a chance to do it over.

Last week, many schools held pep rallies to prepare their students mentally for the rigors of the exam.
