STAR test results should be here soon

The test results are in the mail.

Nevada County school district superintendents are receiving boxes of results this week from the STAR tests students took in the spring.

Most districts should receive all results by the end of this month, according to the California Department of Education, and parents should get results within 20 days after that.

Results from the STAR test – Standardized Testing and Reporting – will likely be mailed out to some Nevada County parents with a letter explaining the results next week.

A 1997 state law requires that all public school districts in California use a single standardized test to test each student in grades two through 11 in reading, spelling, written expression and mathematics.

Students in grades nine through 11 are tested in reading, writing, mathematics, history-social science and science.

The 2002 STAR results be available on the Internet by 10 a.m. Aug. 15 at
