UNIVERSAL SCREENER: RENAISSANCE 360
Star Renaissance 360 is the Fort Bend ISD adopted universal screener.
What is a universal screening?
Universal screening is an assessment process used with all students within a given grade, school, or district for the purposes of identifying or predicting students who may be at risk academically. Screenings are administered at a minimum of three times per year: beginning of year (BOY), middle of year (MOY), and end of year (EOY).
What are Renaissance 360 assessments?
Renaissance 360 assessments are short tests that provide teachers with learning data. These tests are computer adaptive, which means they tailor each testing experience to the individual student by selecting items that match each student’s performance level. Teachers receive specific data that helps them individualize instruction and support student success. The average assessment times are between 15 to 25 minutes. Students take Renaissance 360 assessments for early literacy, math, and/or reading based on their grade level.
Please note, Renaissance 360, "Star 360," is the district-adopted universal screener for Early Literacy, Reading, and Math. This screener is NOT part of the state STAAR testing system.
How do teachers use Renaissance 360 assessments?
Teachers rely on Renaissance 360 data to guide student growth. Renaissance 360 offers educators a variety of scores (see Renaissance Scores Explained). Teachers analyze this data to better understand what students already know, what they are ready to learn next, and to determine which students may need additional help.
