Star Assessments are short, computer-adaptive tests designed to provide teachers with reliable learning data. Teachers use this data to monitor student growth, determine which students need intervention, and to learn what each student is ready to learn next.
Computer-adaptive tests adjust the difficulty of your child's test by choosing each test question based on responses to previous questions.
Your child may take one or more of the following star tests:
- Star Early Literacy: Administered to students in kindergarten, first, and second grade or beginning readers who do not yet read independently. It consists of 27 items and generally takes fewer than 15 minutes for the student to complete.
