STAR Math & STAR Reading

What are STAR Math and STAR Reading? These are assessment tools that allow the teacher to objectively assess and monitor a student’s progress throughout the years that will supplement the Iowa Standardized Tests administered in each March. At the beginning of the school year, students will participate in these online assessments in both Math and Reading. With each question the student answers correctly, the following question increases in difficulty in order to provide the teacher with an adequate feedback on the student’s individual ability. The teacher will then set the goals for the students in each subject for the year. STAR Reading will provide the teacher, student, and parents with the reading level the student should be seeking in order to fulfill their Accelerated Reader requirements.
