|Star Assessment Program|
Oregon City Schools purchased a new assessment system with ARRA Stimulus Funds to improve student achievement in the areas of reading and math. We are excited about the quantity of data we will be able to use to tailor instruction to meet student needs.
There are four assessment tools: STAR Early Literacy, STAR Reading, STAR Math, and Accelerated Reader. Students in kindergarten will take the early literacy assessment only. Students in first grade will take the early literacy, reading and math assessments and students in grades 2-5 will take the reading and math assessment. All students in grades K-5 will have access to Accelerated Reader.
We look forward to utilizing the data provided to us by using these assessments. If at any time you have questions regarding the STAR Assessment Program, please contact your child's teacher for a futher explanation.
