Although the State of Texas has decided to discontinue its World History End-of-Course STAAR Test, many students in Texas will continue to take a course in World History.
Moreover, all high school students will eventually have to pass the U.S. History End-of-Course Test. Can your district afford have students wait until 11th Grade before they become familiar with the format of STAAR-type Social Studies questions?
Our World History Test Bank is designed to help you meet the need for high-quality, STAAR-type items in World History.
You will find that all of the TEKS are covered, with a multitude of questions for every TEKS. This test bank just has so many questions—680 based on the tested student expectations and another 20 assessment items on social studies skills—that you will have ample practice questions for creating your own quizzes, unit tests, a midterm, and a final exam.
The test bank is organized to follow the TEKS. Each TEKS, found in a gray box at the top of the page, begins a new section. There are at least three or more STAAR-type questions for each TEKS. The questions run the gamut from easy to challenging –– both in content and cognitive complexity. They also cover all of the performance level descriptors from Level I to Level III (“Advance Academic Performance”).
Each question is designed to test student mastery of a specific TEKS. These questions are different from those in Mastering the TEKS in World History and cannot be found in any other resource, so they will provide you with a true snapshot of what your students know for diagnostic purposes. It will also give them practice in facing questions they have not seen before, in order to prepare them for the STAAR Test.
Most important of all, you will find maps, documentary excerpts, photographs, and diagrams as part of many questions –– just like those on the STAAR End-of-Course Test they will later take in U.S. History.
Because the test bank follows the TEKS themselves, navigating the test bank’s many pages of questions is quite easy. Each TEKS appears in order and each new TEKS begins on a separate page. (The TEKS appear in the same order as in the Texas Standards, and not as they appear in the TEA’s Assessed Curriculum booklet.) You will find a convenient list of bookmarks alongside the test bank, listing all of the TEKS. Simply click on World History TEKS in the column alongside the test bank. Then click on the particular TEKS you want. The bookmark will immediately take you to that part of the test bank.
It would cost your district many thousands of dollars to produce a test bank of this scope and quality. Moreover, once you buy the test bank, you will receive a license for use of all the items within your district in perpetuity. We will ask you to sign a licensing agreement to this effect. Your district will be buying the use of these items not just for this year, but also for every year in the future. There is simply no better bargain available today!
