Ace it! small-group Math programs use evidence-based instructional strategies to address the diverse needs of students within each group. Once a student completes the STAR Math Assessment, the student is placed in a group with students who have similar academic needs.

The STAR assessments, developed and validated by Renaissance Learning, are the most widely used assessments in K through 12 schools. These computer-adaptive tests provide the most valid, reliable, actionable data in the least amount of testing time—usually 25 minutes or less. The use of the STAR assessments enables Sylvan to quickly focus on individualizing student placement, and to provide an accurate measure of growth.
