STAR Testing

Our teachers and administrators use testing data to help differentiate instruction so that all of our students can reach their highest potential.


With the implementation of STAR testing, students in grades 1-8 are given a computer-adapted assessment in math and reading four times a year. In addition, Kindergarten students take an early literacy assessment. STAR testing takes about 20 minutes to complete and provides valid, reliable, and actionable data.


Results are shared with parents when report cards are sent home. Scores are both criterion- and norm-referenced.
