Desmos in Texas

22 November 2019

We’ve heard a lot of confusion this past month about whether students can use Desmos during the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR).

After several weeks of late nights, and with input from many of you, we’re thrilled to announce that the STAAR version of our Test Mode apps now complies with the Texas graphing calculator policy. To celebrate, we’ve added Texas to the map on There, you’ll find detailed information on the differences between STAAR mode and the regular graphing calculator.

We’re so grateful to everyone who helped ensure that Desmos can be safely and confidently used by teachers and students in Texas.

For more information on how to use Desmos for STAAR, you can:

Happy graphing, Texas!
