The questions are rigorous and have bright graphics to keep students engaged. All questions are multiple choice and are STAAR formatted. I have designed these task cards to give more weight to the Readiness Standards which comprise nearly 2/3 of the STAAR test. The questions are rigorous and have bright graphics to keep students engaged. All questions are multiple choice.

You will love the diagnostic key that helps you easily identify student needs and form reteach groups quickly while you grade student work. The questions are rigorous and include convincing distractors (wrong answer choices), making these task cards a great tool in not only reviewing content but also giving you the opportunity to teach test-taking strategies.
