It’s not too late (or early) to get set for SATs.

To ensure you’re fully prepared, and to help understand the core values and impact of Star Assessments, we’ve put together a free-to-download ‘Get set for SATs, Star Assessments resource pack’.

Comprised of our exclusive Focus Skills workbooks, our new ‘The Science of Star’ brochure, KS2 Linking Study and The 3-step guide to effective assessment, this pack includes key, useful information along with valuable insights which can be applied to your school.

Focus Skills: Based on extensive research into how learning progresses in reading and mathematics from Reception to Year 11, Focus Skills provide a roadmap for closing learning gaps as you move every student toward greater mastery.

The Science of Star: This brochure includes a brief overview of all our Star solutions and explains how Computer Adaptive Testing is used for progress monitoring and intervention, as well as deep-diving into the reliability and validity of Star Assessments.

KS2 Linking Study: The collaborative study between RenaissanceĀ and the Department for Education compared studentsā€™ SATs scores with their Renaissance Star scores and found an extremely strong correlation between the two.

The 3-step guide to effective assessment: Helps to effectively assess, identify and track student progress with ease. This guide is ideal for those who want to monitor student performance without increasing teacher workload, quickly identify attainment gaps and next steps in learning and accurately track student progress made at any time of the year.
