Required Assessments in Star360

All students in 9th-12th grades will take Star360 assessments this year for math and reading. These will be taken in August, December, and May. Additionally, all students will be taking a USA Test Prep assessment in October and March to ensure students are meeting their grade level standards and to simulate state testing. These assessments are required and help our teachers target instruction to meet students’ needs and ensure growth. It is important that students complete these assessments on their own, without assistance from learning coaches or other sources.

Your teachers will also send out information to complete Star360 assessments, but students may begin now to complete them. They must be completed by Friday August 14th.

· Log in website:

• Username: Your Student ID (ex: 123456)

• Password: Your first name in lowercase and last 3 numbers of your Student ID (ex: phillip456)

• Everyone will take a Star Reading test and a Star Math test (do not take Early Literacy).

• Honest efforts rewarded – Do your best (how much time you take on it is monitored), complete it, and receive points upon completion.

If you get kicked out and it asks for a Monitor Password, that password is: admin
