How do I get to this page?

  1. Log in to Renaissance Place.
  2. On the Home page, select Star Early Literacy (or Early Literacy Assessments under Star 360 if you are using the Star 360 Suite).

  3. Select Preferences.
  4. On the Preferences page, select Edit at the end of the Demo Video row.

Who can do this with default capabilities?

  • District Level Administrators: any class or group in any school in the district
  • School Level Administrators: any class or group in their school
  • Teachers: any of their own classes or groups

This preference allows you to determine if students will view the demonstration video at the beginning of a Star Early Literacy test.

  1. Select the shaded section of the "Setting for..." sentence to choose which classes or groups you want to set the Demo Video Preference for .

  2. In the window that opens, select a school in the Schools column . (The preference can only be set for one school at a time. School level administrators and teachers who are only assigned to one school will not need to select a school.)

  3. In the Classes and Groups column , you have two options:

    • Choose All Classes and Groups to apply the same preference setting to all classes and groups that are listed.
    • Choose Select Classes and Groups if you want to set this preference only for specific classes and groups in this list. Select the classes and groups you want the preference to apply to .

    You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.

  4. Select Apply to apply your choices, or Cancel to close this window without saving your changes.

  5. The classes and groups you chose will be listed on the page, and described in the "Setting for..." sentence.

    For each class or group, select how often you want students in that class or group to see the demo video .

    • Available until first test is completed: Students will see the video the first time they take a test. Once a student has seen the video and finished a test, that student will not have the video shown to them again.
    • Always off: Students will not see the demonstration video.

    To set the same preference for all the classes or groups shown at the same time, select Set All... , select Available until first test is completed or Always off , and then select Apply to All .

  6. When you have finished making your changes, select Save Changes to save them (you will see a confirmation message once your changes have been saved). You can also select Undo Changes to undo your changes to the preference setting.

  7. Select Back at the top of the page to return to the Preferences page when you are done.
