Renaissance Star Assessments

STAR Testing is a national assessment taken by students in schools across the United States.

Grade Equivalent

Grade Equivalent scores range from 0.0 to 12.9+. They represent how a student's test performance compares with that of other students nationally. For example, if a 5th-grade student has a GE of 6.6, their score is equal to that of a typical 6th grader after the sixth month of the school year. This score does not necessarily mean that they are capable of doing class work at the 7th-grade level. It only indicates that their skills are well above average for their grade level.


Percentile Rank Range

Percentile Rank scores range from 1 to 99 and express student ability relative to the scores of other students in the same grade. For a particular student, this score indicates the percentage of students in the norms group who obtained lower scores. For example, if a reading assessment gave a student a Percentile Rank of 85, the student's reading skills are greater than 85% of other children in the same grade.
