Just curious if any one has any details about the format of the computer STAR reading test?
My DD took the STAR reading test, at school, last year. They would retake the test every QTR to show growth. Last year her Reading level according, to STAR, her level barely increased all year long and actually decreased over the summer.
My DD is a very advanced reader. I know for a fact that her reading speed and compression has increased since last year. She loves to read and is constantly reading. She even got a perfect score on the reading section of our state test.
So what gives? What does this test use, if not comprehension, to determine reading level?
