The Placement Centre is the first part of the three-part CARS & STARS series. It is used to assess the child's reading comprehension and then place them in the correct CARS Level.
Please note: CARS & STARS Online is based on reading comprehension level, not year level. Children in the same year level may have different levels of comprehension. Therefore, children that are in the same class can be in different CARS & STARS levels. The Placement Centre evaluation ensures the child is on the correct level for their ability.
Parents will be able to change their recommended placement levels if necessary. Learn more
