RE-TESTERS

TESTERS &
RE-TESTERS

STAAR MASTER® utilizes spaced repetition of skills and concepts so students internalize and master the standards. Both first-time test takers and re-testers benefit from this approach.

We employ a modified version of Norman Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) model, which consists of four distinct depth of knowledge levels: recall and repetition, skills and concepts, strategic thinking, and extended thinking and application.

STAAR MASTER® pioneered the Integrated Standards Preparation™ approach, which encompasses six stages of standards preparation throughout the year: diagnose, teach, practice, evaluate, remediate, and reinforce.

More than 500 school districts and 300,000 students in Texas use STAAR MASTER® annually. With 37 years of experience developing educational resources, our expertise and experience is unparalleled in the industry.

Teaching in the modern way

Research/Case Studies

ECS Learning Systems is committed to creating effective supplementary educational products for all students. We believe that independent scientific research is necessary to quantify the outcomes our products achieve in the classroom. The role of efficacy in school district decision-making processes has increased due to federal funding requirements calling for the scientific support of educational products. The resulting scientific findings, in turn, inform the design and development of our future offerings. ECS understands validation requires ongoing studies and is committed to ensuring our products meet your students’ needs.
