No marking = More teacher time



Valid and reliable

  • Valid and reliable: Star Reading incorporates Learning progressions, an empirically validated description of how learning typically advances in reading. The learning progressions have been built for the new British national curriculum  by Renaissance Learning in collaboration with the British National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER).
  • Fast: You can screen your entire class in as little as 20 minutes to reveal which children need help to reach benchmarks and to group children by proficiency levels.
  • Actionable: Meet all your testing needs in one assessment, generating concise reports on screening, benchmarking, child growth and progress monitoring to inform planning.

Accurate and detailed assessment data

Star Reading gives you access to an accurate set of data to inform your teaching and your children’s reading practice:
