9-12th Grades: Renaissance Star Reading

Our secondary high school staff have long wanted a reading assessment tool to track all students, identify reading levels, and monitor the progress of struggling students. After a short, online, universal screener, Renaissance Star provides teachers the opportunity to see the Lexile reading levels of their classes, and provide regular progress measures for intervention students. This will also make the incoming 8th grade data more meaningful, providing consistency from grades K-12.
