STAAR testing begins today for Texas students

Make sure the kiddos get plenty of rest and good nutrition this week.

The STAAR test begins for many Texas students this morning. It will be given to 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th grade students, as well as high school students.

Last year, 14,000 students taking the test online either received the wrong version or had their answers erased.

The Texas Education Agency says the vendor made $20 million in improvements and technical support for this year's version.
