History and Background of Nebraska's School-Based Teacher-Led Assessment and Reporting System (STARS)
Roschewski, Pat
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v23 n2 p9-11 Jun 2004
Nebraska's approach to standards, assessment, and accountability, the School-based Teacher-led Assessment and Reporting System (STARS) is based upon local control and the belief that classrooms and teachers must be at the heart of student learning and accountability. STARS relies on locally-developed assessment systems to accurately measure and report student performance on state content standards. Each local system in Nebraska's 500+ school districts is reviewed for technical quality, and districts are publicly rated for assessment quality and student performance. The purpose of this article is to establish the historical background.
