Grade Placement (GP)
Grade placement (GP) is a numeric representation of a student's grade level, based on the specific month in which a student takes a Star Early Literacy test.
The GP appears on the Annual Progress Report, the Growth Report, the Summary Report, and the Test Record Report.
Star Early Literacy considers the standard school year to run from September through June and assigns increment values of 0.0 through 0.9 to these months.
The software automatically assigns grade placements using a student's grade level and the month in which a Star Early Literacy test was taken.
Grade Placements for pre-K students are negative numbers.
