Welcome to STAR!
STAR (Schools and Technology for Assessment and Reflection) uses the power of the Internet to improve student learning by engaging educators in professional development connected to high quality performance tasks. STAR focuses on student work and gives life to standards by helping teachers understand what is quality work and by involving them in:

  1. pre-work to help prepare students for performance tasks
  2. task administration
  3. training in scoring to ensure reliability
  4. scoring performance tasks
  5. analyzing results to inform teaching and learning

STAR

  • provides students with a forum to demonstrate what they know
  • enables teachers to identify areas of concern
  • encourages school-wide collaborative inquiry
  • can become part of your district’s local comprehensive assessment system and may help your district meet new federal annual testing requirements
