Star Reading - Password Requirement Preference

How do I get to this page?

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

  3. Select Preferences.
  4. On the Preferences page, select Edit at the end of the Password Requirement 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

The setting of this preference determines whether a monitor password is required before students can begin taking a test. (The Monitor Password Preference is what you use to set the password if you are requiring one.)

  1. Select the shaded section of the "Setting for..." sentence to choose which classes or groups you want to set the Password Requirement 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. 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. 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 .
  5. Select Apply to apply your choices, or Cancel to close this window without saving your changes.

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

    For each class or group, check the Monitor password required box if you want the students in that class or group to have the monitor password entered before they begin a test.

    Remove the check mark from the box if you do not want the students in that class or group to have the monitor password entered before they begin a test.

    You can check all the boxes at once by selecting Set All... , checking the Monitor password required box in the pop-up window, and then selecting Apply to All .

  7. 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.

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

  9. The setting of the Password Requirement Preference affects all of these programs; changing it in one program changes it for all of them:

    • Star Early Literacy (English and Spanish)
    • Star Math (English and Spanish)
    • Star Reading (English and Spanish)
