Innovate. Connect. Inspire. Achieve

CARS & STARS Online is derived from the reading comprehension program CARS & STARS that is produced as a printed series featuring a teacher book and a student workbook. The web application is modulated in a similar structure to the printed work, with a teacher/parent portal and a student/child portal available.


The CARS & STARS Online: Diagnostic module recreates the reading experience of the CARS Plus student workbook, with the added benefit of online data analysis. Students are presented with the same stories as in the printed workbook but in a full-colour, illustrated digital format. Students read a story, using their laptop, tablet, desktop PC or smartphone they complete a series of multiple-choice questions. The module then automatically analyses the student’s answers to determine their grasp of the CARS & STARS Plus 12 reading comprehension strategies. A completely digital experience from reading to assessment, the CARS & STARS Online: Diagnostic module prepares students and teachers for the Instruction (STARS) module of the CARS & STARS Plus reading comprehension program.

CARS Online is currently available, presenting the full CARS series in an exciting digital form that is accessible on all major devices and platforms. STARS Online content is currently being developed and will be available in 2018.
