STAR Reading and Math
What is STAR?
The STAR assessments—STAR Reading and STAR Math—are commonly-used computer-adaptive tests in K12 schools. STAR assessments are accurate, efficient, and easy to use to gather data on student progress.
Eagle Academy uses STAR Reading and STAR Math to benchmark students and track monthly progress school-wide. STAR scores are used with other assessments to create a whole picture of a student's strengths and weaknesses, and are an integral part of our Response to Intervention process.
In addition, STAR Reading scores are used to determine individual reading levels for Accelerated Reader. As students demonstrate growth on their STAR Reading tests, their ZPD (Zone of Proximinal Development) Reading Range increases. This allows them to read more challenging books in the Accelerated Reader program, which improves their reading skills.
STAR Reading, STAR Math, and Accelerated Reader are all part of Renaissance Learning's Web-Based Software.
