STAR computer-adaptive assessments are among the most efficient and most widely used tests in the world, and the latest version, “Enterprise”, includes Common Core-aligned items and CCSS-specific reports.
STAR Enterprise assessments—Reading, Math, and Early Literacy—are built on research-based learning progressions. The importance of learning progressions, which map the Common Core State Standards and their associated pre-requisite skills, is specifically noted in the Common Core State Standards documents, and our learning progressions are among the most rigorously developed, tested, and validated progressions in the world.
These learning progressions take the Common Core Standards to the next level by going beyond just assessment by providing teachers with specific, actionable information. STAR Enterprise reports show the next instructional steps and the prerequisite skills necessary to develop and deliver the personalized instruction necessary. This allows teachers to bridge assessment and instruction and move students toward meeting the CCSS.
