After the great success of our Renaissance Reader programme, the school has invested in the equivalent Maths programme to target Numeracy levels across the school.
You can find out more about Renaissance here.
All of our S1 to S3 pupils have been assessed through STAR Maths, a computer-adaptive programme, which tailours to each individual child. This provides us with information which allows us to target your child's indivudual needs and ensures that we are constantly building upon their Numeracy skills throughout their experience in BGE.
While the programme is tailoured to the English curriculum, we have adapted this to suit our curriculum for excellence.
The STAR Maths assessment assignes your child a Scaled Score (SS) of between 0 to 1400 and spans years 1-13. It is calculated based on the difficulty of the questions and the number of correct responses. Scaled Scores are useful for comparing student performance over time and across years. Below is a table detailing the 'target' scores for your child depending on their current year of study. Please note that these scores have slightly changed since the parental letter sent out recently.
