BLOOMINGTON, MINN. (July 14, 2023) – Renaissance, a leader in pre-K–12 education technology, recently announced that the Georgia Department of Education has approved Star CBM Reading, Star Early Literacy, and FastBridge as universal screeners for characteristics of dyslexia. The list of approved universal screeners was created in accordance with Senate Bill 48, which provides for identification of and support for Georgia students in kindergarten through third grade with dyslexia.
Georgia approved Star CBM Reading and Star Early Literacy for grades K–3, as well as FastBridge, for dyslexia screening. These Renaissance products can be used to cover all Georgia educators’ screening and dyslexia needs for essential early reading skills.
“We’re pleased to support the teachers and students of Georgia with valid and reliable assessments for measuring and monitoring literacy skills proficiency, and identifying students at risk for characteristics of dyslexia,” said Darice Keating, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs at Renaissance. “Renaissance assessments will help teachers to identify students who may be at risk for developing reading difficulties and are in need of additional instruction and intervention.”
Star Assessments and FastBridge are already used by many Georgia districts for universal screening, and Star CBM Reading allows educators to accurately assess students’ development for targeted instruction and intervention.
