DIGITAL READING COMPREHENSION PROGRAM TO IMPROVE LITERACY SKILLS

Our program is designed to empower teachers to improve their students' performance. We provide in-depth reporting, related to each strategy, and suggest how teachers can further help their students in specific areas. This allows teachers to pinpoint individual students’ weaknesses and strengths.
Makes teachers' lives easier

We understand teachers are busy and spend a lot of time either correcting answers or assessing what to teach next. We have designed CARS & STARS Online to help make marking, tracking and generating reports quicker and more intuitive, allowing more time to concentrate on student learning.


As students complete lessons, teachers can input, track and analyse their results for detailed assessment. CARS & STARS Online allows teachers to access reports on individual students, as well as find correlations in a group of students or the entire class, making differentiated instruction easier than ever before. Like the student subscription, teachers can access CARS & STARS Online via their laptop, tablet, desktop PC or smartphone.

HOW IT WORKS

 
01
The Placement Centre
The CARS & STARS Online program is based on reading comprehension ability, not year level. The Placement Centre evaluations test individual students’ comprehension levels and place them in the appropriate CARS & STARS level.

02
Diagnose with CARS
Once the Placement Centre has put the students in their designated CARS & STARS reading level, the students will begin their five Pretests to diagnose their strengths and weaknesses in the 12 reading comprehension strategies.

03
Instruct with STARS
After completing Pretest diagnostics based on the students’ areas of need, six specific strategy lessons will be automatically recommended for the students to complete in order to remediate areas that need reinforcement.

04
Benchmark/Progress monitoring
Throughout the year, the students will work on the five Benchmark tests to monitor their progress. Each Benchmark test requires between 45–60 minutes to complete and discuss.

05
Assess mastery with CARS: Diagnostic
Upon completion of the STARS lessons and Final Review, students will begin the five Post Tests. After completing the Post Tests, the students will complete their Self-Assessment 2 and select the checkbox to send a copy to your email address.

PRAISE FOR CARS & STARS ONLINE

“I've found CARS & STARS Online has really helped in improving my children's reading skills. The skills were all clearly presented with a lot of samples and practice opportunities. The student report also gives the parents a clear guide as to which areas need reinforcement and which areas each child is strong in.”

Shannon Zhao
Parent from Sydney


“Our teachers are really enjoying CARS & STARS Online and what it offers.”
