On Monday, all the work put in by students and teachers for months comes into play as new standardized tests called the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness — STAAR — begin.

Youngsters in grades three through nine will take STAAR this year.

Sophomores, juniors and seniors will continue taking TAKS, which goes away at the end of the 2013-2014 school year.

The Texas Education Agency has agreed that districts don't have to count STAAR test results toward students' final grades this year.
