STAR Testing is a standardized set of tests that are taken by students three times a year- in the fall, winter, and spring – to monitor grade 9-11 students’ English Language and Math knowledge in those two sections throughout the academic year.
As for Coronado, the STAR Testing took place on April 1-12 for grades 9-11 in English and Math classes.
Mr. Baldwin, assistant principal, mentioned the overall growth rate of 51% in Math and 63% in English Language Arts that met a standard expected growth rate set by the district which is 50% minimum.
Specifically, freshmen showed outstanding growth in ELA and sophomores showed the highest improvement rates for the Math section among grade 9-11.
Freshmen reached 70% growth on the ELA section of the testing, sophomores reached 60% growth on the same section and juniors reached 57% growth. As for the Math section, freshmen reached 46% growth, sophomores achieved 54% growth, whereas juniors reached 51% growth, which is quite positive, because “anything above 50% improvement rate is basically above average, going into the 60’s is very impressive,” Mr. Baldwin mentioned.
