ASSESSMENTS

ACADEMIC TESTING

Star Assessments

 

All Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools students in grades 2 – 8 take the Reading and Math Star Assessments. 

The assessments are short tests that provide teachers with learning data. Star tests are computer adaptive, which means they adjust to each answer your child provides. This helps teachers get the best data to help your child in the shortest amount of testing time (about one-third of the time other tests take).

Assumption students take Star Assessments three times a year: fall, winter, spring.
