Huh.
Seems like you people have a bunch of different abbreviations for different tests, and I'd guess that it depends on what state you're in.
For me, this test is the CRCT.
And 8th graders take some kind of other test called the EOCT.

We (my township/district), take STAR online, though we also have ISTEP for up until high school, I think that's being phased out or done on computers soon.
The more answers you get correct in a row on a STAR test, the harder it gets, so you're either a genius in your class, you're bad at math, or we're talking about two completely different STARs.

Common Core is something completely different. It's made to replace the 50 state-issued tests with a nationwide one, Common Core. It focuses on critical thinking slightly more rather than MEMORIZE THIS FORMULA AND DO THIS PROCESS.

uhh i have MAP, online test for math, english and reading :o

I have common core.
I have this too. I loving hate it with every inch of my life. It's not multiple choice either iirc.

on the subject of tests going by different names, in elementary school we had a yearly standardized test called the SAT, so that was pretty confusing for me when I found out there's the other one too
