After Spring testing of Star Reading and Star Math, a computer based adaptive test, Lotus Students improved by 1.8 Grade Equivalent (GE) Level in Math and 1.5 GE in Reading Schoolwide. Average US students improve 1 GE per year.
Star Testing is done 5 times a year. Students' progress is monitored throughout the year and instructions are tailored to students needs. Star Tests are adaptive which means as your student answers a question correctly, the level of the next question will be higher and if s/he answers incorrectly, the level of the next question will be slightly lower. The test finds the level of the student and provides us a clear picture of what your student knows.
Here are the top growing grades in Math and Reading:
|Secondary Math||Growth in GE||Elementary Math||Growth in GE|
|9th Grade||5 GE||5th Grade||2.1 GE|
|11th Grade||4.4 GE||4th Grade||1.8 GE|
|12th Grade||4 GE||2nd Grade||1.4 GE|
|Secondary Reading||Growth in GE||Elementary Reading||Growth in GE|
|8th Grade||1.7 GE||5th Grade||1.7 GE|
|7th Grade||1.6 GE||4th Grade||1.3 GE|
|6th, 9th, 11th, 12th Grades||1.5 GE|
Congratulations to all students and teachers for their hard work to accomplish this great success!
