What is Star?
Star Assessments (published by Renaissance Learning) are a suite of computer-adaptive tests (CATs) and curriculum-based measures (CBMs) that:
- measure students’ reading and math skills
- monitor achievement and growth, and
- track how well students understand skills aligned to the Common Core standards.
Star results are used to identify students who are meeting grade- and term-level benchmarks in literacy and math, as well as those who may need additional support or interventions. As a District, we are also using the CATs to monitor our students’ progress toward meeting our District-wide Board Goals.
