This resource includes 2 ten question Assessments of the Financial Literacy TEKS. The questions are STAAR formatted. Test questions cover Human Capital, Labor, Income, Availability and Scarcity of Resources, Planned and Unplanned Expenses, Credit, and Savings. The assessments are in 2 formats: printable PDF and digital, self-grading Google Forms.
The assessments are created to give you meaningful feedback on student progress with Financial Literacy Content. There are more questions covering the Readiness Standards than the Supporting Standards, as the Readiness Standards are identified as the most critical content for success in subsequent grade levels. Readiness Standards also comprise 2/3 of the STAAR test.
These tests were created with the new STAAR test questions guidelines in mind, and include drop down, multi-select, free response and multiple choice questions.
