STAR Assessment

Your child may have taken one or more STAR Assessments in the areas of Early Literacy, Reading and/or Mathematics.  These assessments are one of the many assessments used to measure student proficiency and growth.  STAR assessments are administered to students a minimum of three times a year (fall, winter and spring) as part of our universal screening process for grades K- 10.

STAR Assessments are short tests that provide teachers with learning data. STAR tests are computer adaptive, which means they adjust to each answer your child provides. This helps provide teachers with the most accurate data about your child’s current skill levels in the shortest amount of testing time.  These assessments, in conjunction with other measures, are used by your child’s teachers to monitor your child’s progress and provide instruction of skills and concepts necessary for continued growth.
