CARS & STARS Online is a comprehensive reading program that allows teachers to identify and teach twelve reading and comprehension strategies and improve literacy results. Teachers can provide differentiated instruction, create structure and continuity, facilitate instructional planning and make recordkeeping easier, all while teaching their children to read. CARS & STARS Online transfers this printed program into the online realm, with a focus on managing assessable data into relevant reports that can be stored, accessed and compared within the program itself. Teachers can access reports on individual students, as well as find correlations in a group of students or the entire class. The expanded Teacher Portal provides multiple enhancements for teachers, based on extensive customer feedback.
The CARS & STARS program provides explicit, easy to use, detailed instruction throughout to determine comprehension. After reading a passage, CARS & STARS Online diagnoses the student’s level of understanding with a series of multiple-choice questions that isolate and determine their comprehension of the 12 strategies.
CARS & STARS Online goes hand-in-hand with blended learning, with all materials and assessments delivered via the online portal, and the student having some degree of control over their own pacing. Teachers are able to closely monitor and track their students’ progress throughout, allowing ready, instant access to student’s assessment data from anywhere with an internet connection.
With CARS & STARS Online, users can even create and update multiple teacher and student accounts at the same time. Simply download our ‘CSV file template’ (Excel), fill out the spreadsheet provided and upload your new data to CARS & STARS Online.
