The Star Summary Report is a Consolidated report that summarizes scores for one Renaissance Place Star product that is installed on the server and registered by at least one school. You can print this report for Star Reading, Star Math, or Star Early Literacy.

When you print the Star Summary Report, you must choose the students to include. You can also choose the reporting parameter group, which allows you to select students with a specific ethnicity, language, gender, characteristic, or grade or students who were enrolled in their schools before a date you specify. You can choose the Star product to include, the reporting period, the grouping options, and whether to include the mean or the median. As you choose these options, you can go back and choose previous options by selecting one of the links on the left side of the page.

  1. If you see the link shown below on the Home page, under Dashboards and Reporting, select Consolidated Reports.
  2. Select Star Summary.
    • If you want to narrow the group further, you can choose a reporting parameter group from the drop-down list or create a new group by selecting Create New or Edit Selected. Reporting parameter groups allow you to select students with a specific ethnicity, gender, language, characteristic, or grade or students who were enrolled in their schools before a specific date.
    • The options that are available to you depend on the available data and your role in the program. If you select a school name, you will see the teachers or classes listed.
