Renaissance Continual Learning and Assessment Solution for MATs

Renaissance and Multi-Academy Trusts

“Star Assessment’s use of standardised scoring is essentially providing an external benchmark comparison to validate teacher judgments. This adds consistency and helps us to identify anomalies. As a trust, Star data provides us with a quick picture across schools, cohorts and subjects which allows us to ask the right questions.”

Kath Sewell, Head Teacher and Assessment Lead, Learning in Harmony Trust

Renaissance Star Assessments for reading, maths and early learning give you actionable data about how the students and schools within your Trust are progressing, as well as their forecasted growth, to help inform your planning and teaching. Star Reading and Star Maths also feature Learning Progressions that have been built for the curriculum by experts at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER).

Renaissance Accelerated Reader and Renaissance Accelerated Maths are powerful tools for monitoring and managing personalised, independent reading and maths practice. Accelerated Reader helps motivate all students across your schools to read for pleasure, whilst Accelerated Maths helps each one of your students to acquire fundamental curriculum-lined skills in a way that meets their unique needs and requirements.
