What is CARS & STARS Online?

CARS & STARS Online is an online portal that allows you to produce detailed reports of how students and class progress using the CARS & STARS reading and comprehension program – and in half the time!

CARS & STARS Online automatically analyses both student performance and overall class performance per reading level, and displays individual strengths and weaknesses in the twelve reading strategies. As students complete lessons, teachers can input, track and analyse their results with CARS & STARS Online for detailed assessment and reports on every student in the classroom.


By giving teachers more time to teach, helping students learn more independently and intuitively, and allowing parents to be involved in their child's learning, CARS & STARS Online integrates the whole school – bringing together parents and teachers to help students become better.

The online portal is derived from CARS & STARS Plus, a printed reading comprehension program published in Australia by Hawker Brownlow Education that features student workbooks and teacher guides. The web application is structured similarly, with a teacher/parent portal and student/child portal available.
