It probably needs more explanation.

I'd appreciate if you could handle it this time. I will  remeber  how
to do it correctly from now on. Thanks.

This is correct. TQ uses the same eval  board  for  all  TQM83xx  and
TQM85xx  modules.  It  was originally developed for the TQM85xx so it
got named STK85xx (STarter Kit 85xx). Later,  it  was  impossible  to
reflect  the  use for the TQM83xx in the name of the eval board. Yes,
this is confusing...
