Placement Levels in Instructional Practice
When you plan assignments for students who are in the same class (not multiple classes), you will see a placement level. If students have taken Star Math tests, the placement level is calculated from the students' latest median test score and typical growth over time. If students have not taken Star Math tests, this is based on the expected proficiency for the grade and the date in the school year. For more information, click on the right side of the Select Skills to Practice page.
The score below the placement level is the score currently selected in the slider control. Clicking the left arrow moves to lower/earlier scores in the Star Scale. Clicking the right arrow moves to higher/later scores in the Star Scale.
