Star Reading & Star Math

The Star Reading and Star Math assessments are computer-adaptive, research-based, valid and reliable assessments that measure student achievement in reading and math skills. As students take the assessment, the software increases or decreases the difficulty level based on students’ responses. The assessments are available in English or Spanish and are administered on a private and protected platform.

The Star Reading assessment is aligned to state and national standards and measures 3 broad domains of Reading Literature, Reading Informational Text, and Language containing 48 subskills/concepts.

The First-Grade Report Card was developed in collaboration with SFUSD administrators, content offices, teachers, parents, and community members. The goal of this new and improved Report Card is to provide parents with a more comprehensible communication tool that conveys their child’s progress toward grade-level expectations.
