Renaissance Star Assessments

Renaissance STAR Assessments are most appropriate when reviewing student progress and growth over time. These reports can be shared with students and families. The results can be used to guide instruction.
STAR Assessments are not appropriate for grading purposes. These assessments are also not appropriate to be used daily/weekly for a quick check of academic growth.

Renaissance Star Assessments

  • Renaissance Star 360 should allow teachers to modify information included in reports. Sometimes teachers and administrators need information presented in a different way from the standard reports given.
  • Renaissance Star 360 should allow for students to increase their ZPD each time they take the STAR rather than only basing it on the initial score.
  • Renaissance Star 360 should give teachers an analysis of types of questions missed so that teachers can assess testing issues with the students.

I feel that is has been a very useful resource for data management in our school. It has helped the students and teachers recognize what needs to be addressed and what they already know so far that school year. I feel that this has been extremely helpful on many different levels.

I love the idea that it takes only a short period of time for the students to be able to take the quizzes and obtain results. I appreciative how quickly the teacher has plans on implementation in her/his hands as soon as the class has completed the quiz.

I joined the Renaissance online community so that has given me lots of ideas. However, I still have to search through tons of posts and discussion threads to find what I need. Online help is available to teachers to find what you are looking for but it is often hard to explain in a chat bubble what you need exactly. I think teacher support is lacking.

It helped that we created a school testing calendar for each grade level and subject matter. In this way, everyone was taking a quiz at a specific time.

Alternatives Considered

Classtime

I have used Edpuzzle, Quizizz, Kahoot, Khan Academy, and Edcite. I use all of them at varying times, depending on my needs. I use Classtime more than any of them because of its versatility of question types and its engagement tools. I also appreciate the ease of making and giving out tests.

Renaissance Star Assessments

STAR is much more comprehensive than other reading assessments available for secondary students. Unlike DIBELS, STAR assesses more than just vocabulary. Unlike other Informal Reading Inventories and assessments, STAR requires no special training to administer or interpret the results. STAR can be used to determine reading levels through a post-secondary reading level

Return on Investment

Classtime

  • It has helped us during in-classroom demonstration lessons.
  • It has helped us with our training on strategic thinking in math.
  • It has given us an outlet to share our test creation skills, which we can model to districts.

Renaissance Star Assessments

  • Schools aren't exactly a business, but Star helps us track progress toward our goals.
  • In education, time is our currency. We save tons of assessment time with Star.
  • Star is data rich and resource rich, which saves us from having multiple resource streams.
