Coldwater Exempted Village Schools use a variety of district and state-mandated assessments to track student progress.  One assessment tool utilized is called STAR Enterprise, which provides valid, reliable, actionable data in the least amount of testing time—usually 20 minutes or less.  STAR uses computer-adaptive technology and extensive item calibration to give you an accurate window into each student’s academic progress.  There are two STAR assessments used within the district:

  • STAR Early Literacy aides in determining early literacy and numeracy progress for emerging readers.
  • STAR Reading contains research-based test items that provide data in four major skill areas: foundational skills, reading informational text, reading literature, and language.
