STudent Achievement in Reading (STAR) began as a six-state pilot project that was designed "to improve classroom instruction through the use of a toolkit that translates reading research into practice, as well as systematic training and technical assistance."

This document "highlights key findings from the research on diagnostic assessment for adult learners and identifies some of the pilot participants’ experiences and reflections on implementing STAR in their programs and classrooms."
