CARS & STARS Online: Assessment and Reports is an online portal that allows you to produce detailed reports of how your students and class progress using the CARS & STARS reading and comprehension program.

CARS & STARS Online automatically analyses both student performance and overall class performance per reading level, and displays individual strengths and weaknesses in the twelve reading strategies. As students complete lessons, teachers can input, track and analyse their results, while producing detailed reports on every student in the classroom.

How Does it Work?

Setting up your CARS & STARS: Online Reporting Tool profile is quick and easy to do! Rather than entering your student and teacher details manually one by one, Hawker Brownlow Education can mass-import your teacher details (name, gender, class, password, email address) and student details (name, gender, email address, classroom, year level, teacher name) for you, so you can be up and running in no time!

Simply fill out the template .csv file (emailed to you following receipt of order) with your school data and send it to hbe@carsandstars.com.au for upload. Once you are set up, HBE will notify you and you can begin entering your students’ CARS Plus test data. Simple and easy data keeping and reports are now available at your fingertips!
