The research-based Comprehensive Assessment of Reading Strategies (CARS®) Series helps educators identify students' strengths and weaknesses in the 12 standards-based reading skills.

  • Pretest, benchmark tests, and post test cover a range of genres
  • Longer reading passages are followed by selected-response questions
  • Tracking forms/charts for teachers and self-assessment forms for students
  • Use results to target instruction with the STARS Instructional Series

CARS and STARS works!
A recent independent research study demonstrated that the number of students performing below grade level declined 45%! See for yourself:

Great preparation for CCSS with leveled informational and literary passages.
