ESTAR/MSTAR Diagnostic

Elementary Students in Texas: Algebra Ready (ESTAR) and Middle School Students in Texas: Algebra Ready (MSTAR) Diagnostic Assessment

The ESTAR/MSTAR Diagnostic Assessment, designed to follow the ESTAR/MSTAR Universal Screener, is administered to identify WHY students are struggling with algebra-related core instruction, and provides information that can be used to plan supplemental instruction. 

The 2017-2018 Administration Windows for the ESTAR/MSTAR Diagnostic Assessments have been scheduled as follows:
Fall: August 28, 2017 - October 20, 2017
Winter: January 15, 2018 - February 16, 2018
Spring: April 30, 2018 - May 25, 2018

2018-2019 ESTAR/MSTAR assessment windows
The 2018-2019 ESTAR/MSTAR assessment windows will be announced during the elementary and middle school TEA Update sessions at the 2018 Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching (CAMT). The dates for the assessment windows will be posted to the Texas Gateway and the Texas: Algebra Ready website after the conference.
