Star Math and Star CBM Math Approved in South Carolina as K–2 Numeracy Screeners
Bloomington, Minn. (Sept 24, 2021) – Renaissance, a global leader in pre-K–12 education technology, recently announced that Star Math and Star CBM Math have been approved by the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) as numeracy screening tools for grades K–2.
Star Math and Star CBM Math meet the SCDE’s criteria for numeracy screeners that districts can incorporate into their Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) process for early learners. These criteria include the length of time to administer the screening tool, the use of normative data for the cut points, and screening in specific grade-level numeracy areas, including number sense, algebraic thinking and operations, measurement and data analysis, and geometry.
Star Math and Star CBM Math provide educators with actionable insights to differentiate instruction and increase math skills mastery for every learner. Each assessment is quick and easy for teachers to administer, provides in-depth information on students’ performance and instructional needs, and can be used in any learning environment.
“We appreciate the opportunity to continue supporting South Carolina educators, students, and parents in numeracy and math,” said Laurie Borkon, Vice President of Government Affairs at Renaissance. “Screening is a core component of MTSS, and we commend SCDE for increasing its focus on math. With valid, reliable, and easy-to-use tools for assessment and practice, we’ll work together with educators across the state to pinpoint skill areas, target instruction, and accelerate student learning.”
