All Parkland students in grades K-5 will be taking a STAR assessment at three different times during this school year; September, January, and May. All STAR assessments are computer-adaptive tests. Computer -adaptive tests continually adjust the difficulty of each child’s test by choosing each test question based on the child’s previous response. Students take STAR Enterprise tests at individual computers. The software delivers multiple-choice items one by one, and the student selects answers with a mouse or the keyboard.
(continued) After a test is completed, the software calculates a score, and teachers and administrators view and analyze reports that show results for an individual, class, grade, or school. STAR assessments measure specific skills as well as overall early literacy and reading ability. They compare students’ achievement to that of students across the nation; estimate mastery of state standards and Common Core State Standards; and report growth over time. Results from this assessment will help us to: provide students with appropriate materials; identify areas where students need more instruction; set learning goals; make plans for meeting those goals; and determine whether the instruction and intervention are effective.
Inquiry is research-based learning. Students work in groups to research questions having to do with theme of the unit. Research may be done at home. They organize the projects and research. I am just a guide.
