Standardized Testing and Reporting - STAR Sample Test Questions

To view sample released test questions, you must enter a response in all the fields below
(Grade Level, Subject, and Performance Level). When all fields are complete, select Submit.

Note: End-of-course subjects are those subjects that can be taken by students in multiple grade levels. Students only take these tests during the grade level in which they take the course. For example, a student in grade eight taking Algebra I would be tested in grade eight and would not take the Algebra I test again in grade nine. These tests are the same for all students regardless of grade level.

These questions are:

  • Intended as examples of the types of questions used in the STAR Program.
  • Not meant to be used as a test or for test preparation.
  • Intended to show the level of knowledge and ability a student must demonstrate to meet state standards.

Sample test questions come from previously administered tests and will not be used on future tests.

More sample questions with answers are available online through the California Department of Education.

The goal in California is to have all students perform at the proficient or advanced level.

What's the Best Way to Print Test Questions?

Each question page has a print icon at the top right. English–Language Arts questions are best printed in landscape mode. All other questions can be printed in either portrait or landscape. Change your settings through page setup.
