Scoring Guides to use for 2015-2016

The following are the cut scores that will be used for each of the STAR assessments.   There are some changes so you will want to review the information carefully.

Early Reading Literacy – For Kindergarten and some 1st grades.  **Note that if you have 2nd-3rd grade students who still have not reached that ability to read 100 words, you may test them with Early Reading Literacy. 

New Information on ERL –Rennaisance Place has released new default benchmarks in STAR Early Literacy as a result of 2014-2015 norming and ongoing research. They reflect national trends toward higher academic standards in K-3 education and are therefore higher than previous benchmarks.

It is possible that educators may see a higher number of students in On Watch, Intervention, and Urgent Intervention on the STAR Early Literacy Screening Report as a result of these higher benchmarks. Please visit this page for additional information including suggestions for incorporating the new benchmarks into your plans for this fall.

If you have already administered STAR Early Literacy assessments prior to August 13, 2015, you do not have to re-test your students to receive accurate results. However, in order to make decisions about your students with the new benchmarks in mind, we strongly suggest running new STAR Early Literacy Screening reports and reevaluating your instructional plans for this fall.

STAR READING & STAR MATH

STAR has aligned the cut scores now to KPREP beginning with Grade 1 on both the Reading and Math.  We will use the KPREP cut scores  for grades 1-8 to determine mastery of the skills and a prediction to how students will master those skills on the state test.  Below you will find those cut scores.   The reports will be run using the cut scores and placing students in Novice, Apprentice, Proficient, and Distinguished. Reports are set to run using KREP scores for Math and Reading)
