STAR 360
(Reading and Math benchmarks)
Students in Kindergarten - 5th will take the STAR 360 assessments five times a year.  STAR 360 is a computerized adaptive assessment that provides teachers with student academic levels in reading and math. Teachers will be able to use this information to tailor instruction around student needs. This test also assigns a zone of proximal development for each child. This helps identify reading level and allows instructors to suggest appropriate books that interest and challenge the student without frustration.  

Please discuss the importance of this test with your child.
