Star Maths - Renaissance Australia

## Renaissance Star Maths®

Increase maths mastery with actionable insight into each student’s maths skills and subskills—whether you’re teaching in-person, remotely, or a blend of both. For universal screening, progress monitoring, goal setting and more.

AWARD-WINNING MATH ASSESSMENT FOR GRADES 1–12

## Unlock every student’s inner mathematician

Whether you are testing in person, remotely, or a combination of both, use Star Maths data to connect each student at every grade level with the concepts they need for future success.

### Insights to differentiate and drive maths growth

Whether assessing in person or remotely, Star Maths puts assessment data to work for educators, so teachers can spend less time analysing results and more time differentiating instruction.

Get recommended groupings of students based on both their scaled scores and benchmark categories, or create your own groups for more effective small-group instruction.

Put assessment data in action with Star Maths’ instructional planning tools, which identify the specific skills each student group is ready to work on.

## Short assessments. Timely insights. Fast growth.

Renaissance acts on our ever-growing database of more than 2.7 billion practice and assessment data points to glean new insights and refine our solutions. Learning analytics and advances in learning science give us more precision to enable shorter assessments and continually fine-tune state-specific learning progressions.

THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE

### See sample items from Star Maths

#### Numbers and Operations

Star Maths measures students’ ability to add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. This domain also covers primes, square roots, percents, and numerical expressions.
See more sample items.

#### Algebra

Students are asked to graph points and functions, evaluate variables, solve linear and nonlinear equations, simplify expressions, and complete other key algebraic tasks.

#### Geometry and Measurement

Star Maths measures students’ ability to identify shapes, lines, and angles; determine and convert measurements; tell time; calculate the perimeter, area, volume, and surface area of shapes; and determine missing measurements or dimensions.
See more sample items.

#### Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability

Students are asked to read and answer questions about charts, tables, and graphs; calculate mean and median; make estimates and determine probabilities; and visually represent data sets.
