The purpose of the STAR assessments is to provide information to teachers about student growth and achievement in grades 1-12. Students take the assessment and it is scored automatically by the software. Teachers and administrators are able to view and print a number of reports at the individual, classroom, and grade level in order to monitor progress. Teachers can then tailor instruction to individuals and to high-stakes testing requirements.

The purpose of STAR Reading is to assess student reading skills. The assessment provides an approximate measure of each students' reading level.

The purpose of STAR Early Literacy is to assess students' early literacy skills in preparation for reading. SEL identifies student reading levels (e.g. Emergent Reader) and provides student performance results for pre-K through third grade students.


The purpose of STAR Math is to assess student mathematics skills. The assessment provides an approximate measure of each students' math level.
