STAR Testing finished August 18th- Access your student's data via Infinite Campus & SLDS
All students took the STAR test for both Reading and Mathematics by August 18th. Our school uses this test to monitor student growth and achievement. Your student's scores are now available through Infinite Campus under the more tab and selecting SLDS. We have detailed video instructions posted on our website to help you with this process and the opportunity to request a more detailed report to help support your student's growth this school year. This report summarizes your child's scores on the assessment and shares areas where they are ready for more practice. As with any assessment, many factors can affect your student's scores. It is important to understand that these scores provide only one picture of how your student is doing in school.
Please access the STAR parent instructions here on the school's website main page for more information.
