A recent study has found that star tests may not be as reliable as we thought for measuring reading comprehension. The study, conducted by the University of Michigan, found that students who did well on star tests tended to have lower reading comprehension scores on other measures.
The study looked at data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which is given to a representative sample of fourth and eighth grade students across the country. The researchers found that, while students who scored high on the star test tended to also score high on the NAEP reading comprehension test, the relationship was not as strong as it was for other measures of reading ability, such as the Stanford Achievement Test.
So what does this mean for teachers and students? First, it’s important to remember that no single test can measure all of a student’s abilities, and that different tests may measure different skills. Second, if you’re using the star test to measure reading comprehension, you may want to give students other tests as well, to get a more complete picture of their abilities.
