STAR Assessments

STAR assessments are the most widely used assessments in K12 schools—for a reason.

STAR assessments provide the most valid, reliable, actionable data in the least amount of testing time—usually 20 minutes or less. That empowers educators to focus on what matters most—individualizing instruction to accelerate learning for all students.

Accelerated Math v.2.0

Teachers know what works for students. That's why Accelerated Math (AM) is the most widely used math program in K-12 schools - and has been for years. Accelerated Math v.2.0 can support math achievement based on state standards for college and career readiness.

Easily balance math practice for students working on grade-level standards and those who need to catch up on foundational skills.

Math proficiency is critical for students’ college and career readiness, and Accelerated Math helps ensure that proficiency for every student. Accelerated Math’s unique methods have been proven effective in more K12 classrooms than any other math program. A total of 101 independent research studies confirm it.

Now, Accelerated Math helps teachers personalize dynamic math practice based on state standards for college and career readiness, grouping students according to STAR Math interim assessment data. Teachers can easily provide dynamic practice for grade-level state standards for college and career readiness and foundational skills development while monitoring progress toward success on summative exams at a glance using the teacher dashboard.
