Get reliable maths data in less time

Renaissance Star Maths is a computer-adaptive assessment, using sophisticated item calibration and psychometrics to adjust dynamically to each child’s unique responses. The tests can be taken at any time throughout the year and as often as results are required.

Valid and reliable: Star Maths incorporates Core Progress™ learning progressions, an empirically validated description of how learning typically advances in maths. The learning progressions have been built for the new national curriculum in collaboration with the 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.
