Renaissance Star Reading and Math Assessments are research-based, computer-adaptive tests that measure student achievement in reading and math. By continually adjusting the difficulty of an item based on a student's performance on previous test items, the assessment accurately measures individual achievement. Star Assessments measure student growth over time to help educators tailor instruction and increase student academic achievement. Students are assessed three times throughout the school year to monitor progress and modify
individualized instructional plans.
