Renaissance Star Assessments


Star Assessments


Star assessments are computer-adaptive tests designed to give educators accurate, reliable, and valid data quickly so that they can make good decisions about instruction and intervention. Star Reading (grades 2-8), Star Math (grades K-8), and Star Early Literacy (grades K-1-2*) include skills-based test items, learning progressions for instructional planning, and in-depth reports. They bridge testing and instruction. They provide a wealth of information about your child’s reading and math skills.
