Review Learn How to Quickly Solve Difficult STAAR Test QuestionsHere's a little 'secret' about the STAAR: the STAARs are what we in the test preparation field call 'content driven' tests.While some tests are looking to see what you are ABLE to learn, the purpose of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), offered by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), are to test your understanding of what you have already learned. The goal of the STAARs are to use a standardized testing process to create an objective assessment of a test taker's knowledge and skills.In other words, it's more about what you know than your ability to solve clever puzzles. This is good news for those who are serious about being prepared, because it boils down to a very simple strategy:You can succeed on the STAARs by learning critical concepts on the test so that you are prepared for as many questions as possible.Repetition and thorough preparation is a process that rewards those who are serious about being prepared, which means that succeeding on the STAAR is within the reach of virtually anyone interested in learning the material.This is great news! It means that if you've been worried about your upcoming STAAR, you can rest easy IF you have a good strategy for knowing what to study and how to effectively use repetition to your advantage.But it also creates another set of problems.If you tried to memorize every single possible thing you can for your STAAR, the field of possible things to review would be so huge that you could not hope to cover everything in a reasonable time.That's why we created the STAAR Assessment Flashcard Study System: we have taken all of the possible topics and reduced them down to the hundreds of concepts you must know and provided an easy-to-use learning method to guarantee success on your STAAR.We wanted this system to be simple, effective, and fast so that you can succeed on your STAAR with a minimum amount of time spent preparing for it. --Here Are Some of the Features of Our STAAR Assessment Flashcard Study SystemStudy after study has shown that repetition is the most effective form of learning- and nothing beats flashcards when it comes to making repetitive learning fun and fastFlashcards engage more of your senses in the learning process- you 'compete' with yourself to see if you know the answers to the questions, and the flipping action gets you actively involved in the learning processOur cards are printed on heavy, bright white 67 lb. cover stock, and are laser printed at 1200 dpi on our industrial printers- these are professional-quality cards that will not smear or wear out with heavy usageWe cover the major content areas on the examOur flashcards include an edge that is micro-perforated, which means that you are much less likely to have a painful papercut on your fingers when moving quickly through the cardsOur cards are portable, making it easy for you to grab a few and study while waiting for the bus or the doctor, or anywhere where you have a spare moment that would otherwise be wastedOur STAAR cards are written in an easy to understand, straightforward style - we don't include any more technical jargon than what you need to pass the testThe cards are a generous size- 3.67 x 4.25 inches- they fit perfectly in your hands and they aren't so small that you have to use a magnifying glass to read tiny type- all questions and answers are in a normal-size print for easy studyingOur cards include in-depth explanations- you won't see any 'one word' answers on our cards that require you to go get a textbook to understand why your answer was wrong- all of our cards include generous, thorough explanations so you not only get it right or wrong- but you also know why!We use a font created by Microsoft to make reading easier- this will enable you to absorb more information painlessly during late night study sessionsOur system enables you to study in small, digestible bits of information- unlike using boring textbooks, flashcards turn learning into a 'game' you can play until you've mastered the materialIt's easy for a friend to help you study- they don't even have to know anything about the STAAR- if they can read, then they can quiz you with our flashcards!Now, let us explain what the STAAR Assessment Flashcard Study System is not.
