Preliminary Linking of Star Reading and Star Math to the Performance Evaluation for Alaska's Schools (PEAKS)

NA (site), NA (city), Alaska (AK)


To develop Pathway to Proficiency reports for Alaska Star Reading Enterprise and Star Math Enterprise schools on the Renaissance Place hosted platform, we linked our scaled scores with the scaled scores from Alaska's achievement test. This technical report details the statistical method behind the process of linking Alaska's state test (PEAKS) and Star Reading and Star Math scaled scores.

NOTE: The cut-score equivalents presented are preliminary estimates of the Star Reading and Star Math scores corresponding with each PEAKS performance level and will be refined as more data become available. To learn more about the next steps for the PEAKS linking study or contribute data to support this linking project, please contact the Research Department at

The full report is available online.
