The STAR Assessments are administered to all students in K-8th grade multiple times throughout the year. Students in grades K-3rd, will take the STAR Early Literacy assessment. This assessment covers literacy skills typically acquired between the ages of 3-9. Older students may also take this assessment if there is concern that they may have gaps in early literacy skills. Once a student (in any grade) reaches a certain scaled score, there is no longer a need to complete this assessment.
Students in grades 2-8 will take the STAR Reading and Mathematics Assessments. Students in 1st grade may also take the STAR Reading and Mathematics if they have at least 100 sight words.
Results of these assessments will be sent home periodically throughout the year.
ACRE tests are given in January of each year to grades 5 and 8. The test measures students’ cumulative knowledge and practice of their faith at those points in time. ACRE results help the school measure the effectiveness of its religious education curriculum.
