How it Works

Why Star is quick and accurate

1. Computer-adaptive testing

Star Assessments are computer-adaptive tests, meaning each student’s testing experience is unique. For new students, Star starts at grade level—or at the level set by their teacher. For returning students, Star picks up at the level they left off.

2. Automatic adjustments

When a student answers a question correctly, Star automatically selects a more difficult item to be the next question. When a student answers a question incorrectly, the opposite occurs and the next item is less difficult than the current one.

4. Accurate results

By adapting to students and eliminating unnecessary questions, Star can accurately measure student performance and growth with fewer items and less time. Complete results are immediately available for educators via interactive, easy-to-read reports.

3. No repetition

The system understands how skills relate to one another—and that a student correctly answering advanced items doesn’t need to be tested separately on the basic component skills. For example, a student who aces complex algebra questions won’t see items testing basic addition skills.

“Instead of aiming for that mythical middle, we’re designing instruction that’s tailored to individual learners. Renaissance serves as vital support tools in this effort, helping us determine where students are, then teaching to each unique academic level.”
