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, bench-marking, child growth and progress monitoring to inform planning.
Accurate and detailed assessment data
Star Maths gives you access to an accurate set of data to inform your teaching and your children’s maths practice:
Norm Referenced Standalised Score: How a child compares nationally with others of a similar age
Percentile Rank: A norm-referenced score that provides a measure of a child’s score compares with other children of the same age nationally
Most suitable year group Maths Library: Star Maths works hand-in-hand with Accelerated Maths Live, identifying which practice items are more suitable for a child
Scaled Score: A measure of a child’s progress against the expected standards in the new maths curriculum
Predict your SATs results with accuracy
Following the changes made to SATs in 2016, it has become hard to know what to expect when it comes to national testing. At Renaissance, we have carried out an extensive research study that compares pupils’ Star scores with their SATs results, ensuring 89% accuracy in Maths, 79% in reading, and 82% in SPaG.
The research was carried out with results from over 12,000 children in over 500 schools.
