Key benefits for Virginia educators

Complete tests in a fraction of time

Star 360 interim assessments take 20 minutes to complete—about a third of the time of comparable computer adaptive tests. A formative assessment tool, Star Custom, helps you create daily assessments for deeper insight into student performance.

Computer adaptive efficiency

Star 360’s interim assessments are computer adaptive and automatically adjust each item based on how the student answered the previous item. This reduces testing time and limits frustration (items are too hard) and boredom (items are too easy).

Screening for your benchmarks

Screen your entire class in minutes, then view reports by class or grade to prioritize student needs based on the percentage of students who are meeting benchmarks. Administrators can adjust benchmarks to fit state, district, or school.

interim

Norm-and criterion-referenced

Star 360 tests are both norm-referenced and criterion-referenced so you can quickly interpret data in multiple ways. Compare students’ progress in reference to normal expected growth and toward criteria for mastery of your state’s standards.

Intuitive dashboards

Key insight in your capable hands has the biggest impact on growth. Quick, clear data reporting simplifies your process for setting goals, monitoring progress, and identifying students in need of intervention.

Progress monitoring and goal-setting

Track how students are responding to intervention and instruction using a research-based growth model to help you set attainable goals. Star 360 charts the projected outcomes and graphs the students’ actual progress toward their goals in the same report.

"Star Assessments give us an excellent way to diagnose our students and monitor their progress throughout the year. Although we previously had other assessments to use, no assessment is as thorough and precise."

How Star 360 measures growth

Student Growth Percentile (SGP) is Star 360’s reliable growth measure for growth data, even as summative exams and benchmarks change. SGP gives a robust view of student growth over time by comparing a student’s previous test scores to current test scores, then measuring that growth alongside academic peers’ growth.
