• STAR assessment link: used by the District this year for reading and math.  These assessments are a universal screening tool to identify a child's current level of proficiency.  They will be administered three times a year: September, January & May.  Tests are taken online and automatically adjust levels of difficulty to match a child's performance, i.e. if a child is successful, questions become harder; if they are struggling, questions become easier.  Each test takes approximately 20 minutes. Feel free to contact me to discuss your child's results.
