The Alaska System of Academic Readiness (AK STAR) is the State's new connected interim and summative assessment administered to all students in grade 3 through 9 annually. The spring of 2022 was the first administration of the assessment. This solution administers MAP® Growth™ in the fall and winter and an end-of-year summative test in the spring, offering coherence across the interim and summative assessments and reducing the number of yearly test events. It is designed to provide parents, educators, policymakers, communities, and businesses with information about student performance and progress in relation to the English/language arts and mathematics standards for Alaska students
Parents have the right to make educational decisions for their children, including whether to participate in statewide testing.
Copies of student results are available from school offices and posted on PowerSchool. State, district, and school results are available to the public on the Department of Education and Early Developmentwebsite.
