Unlock every student’s inner mathematician

## Award-winning math assessment for Grades K–12

Whether you are testing in person, remotely, or a combination of both, use Star Math data to connect each student at every grade level with the concepts they need for future success.

## Insights to differentiate and drive math growth

Whether assessing in person or remotely, Star Math puts assessment data to work for educators, so teachers can spend less time analyzing results and more time differentiating instruction.

Get recommended groupings of students based on both their scaled scores and benchmark categories, or create your own groups for more effective small-group instruction.

Put math assessment in action with Star Math’s instructional planning tools, which identify the specific skills students are ready to work on and provide instructional resources to teach those skills.

Get every student on track for success

## One math assessment, many uses

### Placement tests

There’s no need to over-test students: Star Math can help place students into content from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Edmentum™, Classworks®, and more, eliminating the need for separate placement tests for different instructional programs.

### College entrance exams

Put math assessment data in action with Star Math’s instructional planning tools, which identify the specific skills each student group is ready to work on.

## Math assessment test experience for students

### Numbers and Operations

Star Math measures students’ ability to add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. This domain also covers primes, square roots, percents, and numerical expressions.

See more sample items.

### Algebra

Students are asked to graph points and functions, evaluate variables, solve linear and nonlinear equations, simplify expressions, and complete other key algebraic tasks.

See more sample items.

### Geometry and Measurement

Star Math measures students’ ability to identify shapes, lines, and angles; determine and convert measurements; tell time; calculate the perimeter, area, volume, and surface area of shapes; and determine missing measurements or dimensions.

See more sample items.

### Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability

Students are asked to read and answer questions about charts, tables, and graphs; calculate mean and median; make estimates and determine probabilities; and visually represent data sets.

See more sample items.

## Star Math is available in Spanish!

Unlike any other K-12 assessment, Renaissance created learning progressions specifically for English and Spanish. You’ll be able to identify the skills students know in both languages and help chart a path to move them towards mastery.

Math assessment test FAQs

## Understanding Star Math

### How is the Star Math assessment test administered?

Star Math can be administered on a computer or tablet. The test is adaptive, which means that the difficulty of the questions adjusts based on the student’s answers. The test takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

### What does the Star Math assessment test measure?

Star Math measures a student’s math skills in a variety of areas, including number and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis, and probability. It provides information about a student’s strengths and weaknesses in these areas and can help teachers identify areas where students may need additional support.

### What types of questions are on the Star Math assessment test?

Star Math includes multiple-choice questions designed to assess a student’s understanding of mathematical concepts, problem-solving abilities, and computational skills.

### How is the Star Math assessment test scored?

Star Math provides a scaled score that ranges from 0 to 1400. The score indicates a student’s overall math performance, with higher scores indicating higher levels of proficiency.

### How can the results of the Star Math assessment test be used?

The results of the Star Math can be used to inform instruction and support student learning. Teachers can use the results to identify areas where students need additional support, provide targeted instruction, and monitor progress over time. Schools and districts can use the results to evaluate the effectiveness of their math programs and make data-driven decisions about curriculum and instruction.

Star Assessments provide a very precise picture of current skill levels… Star Assessments use color-coded displays as well as at-risk criteria, which can be altered, to illustrate important data. In Star Assessments, it’s easy to see those changes, monitor growth, and set criteria for making decisions.
