The Renaissance Star Reading Test is one of many formative assessment methods to monitor students’ reading and language skills growth.
I’ve found that with proven classroom motivation methods, Star Test results correlate well with other classroom assessment patterns, meaning they are a reliable to use for whole-class and individual instructional planning.
I recently created the video below in response to hearing several non-ELA teachers ask for help navigating the Star Test website, differentiating its reports, and analyzing student data.
Have your experiences with the Star Test been as positive as mine? Do you use a different report not addressed in this video that has produced powerful results in your instruction, planning, or growth outcomes? Comment below!
