CARS & STARS Online brings data-driven instruction to the classroom in a way that is both uniquely targeted and easy to administer. For disadvantaged schools and students, it offers a way of teaching directly and informedly that is unparalleled in the field of reading comprehension instruction.
CARS & STARS Online is built on the core belief that no student learns exactly the same way or at exactly the same pace, and this knowledge informs the whole program – making it one built on differentiation as its central concept, rather than something added later to complement existing, more rigid instruction.
Data-gathering and utilisation, at the forefront of modern educational practice, are also at the forefront of the CARS & STARS Online program. Ongoing, accurate and transferable data collection at every stage of instruction and assessment allows the teacher to have a total picture of their class and individual students at any time, allowing instant identification of students requiring specialised care or instruction, and making differentiation a constant and ongoing process for every class rather than an afterthought.
In today's world of differentiated classrooms, teachers strive to deliver the best possible instruction to every student while being acutely aware of the differences in outlook, circumstances, experience and skill in every child. CARS & STARS Online is built on the core idea of offering every student instruction personalised to their needs. With CARS & STARS Online's advanced system of classroom management, one teacher can administer a class in which every student might be at an instructionally different level.
