The STAR Renaissance test is a computer-based assessment for reading and mathematics. Valley Oaks offers this testing to our 2nd-8th-grade students three times during the school year, although parents may opt to use this service more frequently by arrangement with their resource teacher. Each test takes about 25 minutes for the student to complete and gives a personalized diagnostic report with helpful suggestions for “next steps” to improve the student’s mastery of concepts. It also gives an approximate grade equivalent and scaled score, which is useful to both the parent-educator and resource teacher as they plan for the student’s growth in the mathematics or reading areas.
