Get valid and reliable
reading data in minutes.

The most trusted assessment for emerging readers.

STAR Early Literacy is the most widely used computer-based diagnostic assessment for determining early literacy and numeracy progress for emerging readers in grades PreK-3. Educators get valid, reliable, actionable data in about 10 minutes, so an entire class can be assessed in one period.

NCRTI

STAR Early Literacy received the highest possible ratings for progress monitoring by the National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI).

Assess 32 skill sets in eight key domains.

STAR Early Literacy’s research-based test items meet the highest standards for reliability and validity, identifying what skills students are proficient on, or excelling at, and where intervention may be needed. Instant access to key reports provides screening and progress-monitoring data to easily target instruction.

Computer-adaptive reliability and efficiency.

STAR assessments are computer adaptive, using sophisticated item calibration and psychometrics to dynamically adjust to each student’s unique responses. Fully supported by extensive research, they are easy to administer and yield the valid, reliable, actionable data educators need.

Sample Items

Learning progressions chart a path forward.

Core Progress learning progressions for reading and math tell you what students know and what they are ready to learn next on an empirically validated learning continuum. They map the inter-related prerequisite skills needed to further conceptual understanding and provide resources to help students achieve mastery. Two editions are available in STAR Early Literacy—Core Progress and Core Progress for Common Core—to optimize alignment with each state’s standards.

New tools and content help improve instruction.

New tools and content help improve instruction.

STAR Early Literacy includes new skills-based test items and new in-depth reports for screening, instructional planning, progress monitoring, and standards benchmarking. Educators have immediate access to skill-specific, actionable data to target instruction and practice, select students for intervention, and estimate mastery of state or Common Core State Standards. STAR is also the first to report Student Growth Percentile, a widely accepted growth measurement.
