Who can do this with default capabilities?

The State Standards - Class Report shows estimates of students' mastery of their state's grade-level standards or the Common Core State Standards.

The report is designed to group small groups of students, such as a class, by their estimated mastery of each state standard, so that the teacher can group students for instruction.

This report only includes Star Reading Enterprise tests, not Star Reading tests.

There are two ways to begin printing the State Standards - Class Report; use whichever method you prefer, then go to step 1:

  1. Click Star Reading on the Home page, then click Reports.
  2. Select your school from the School drop-down list, if necessary.
  3. Click State Standards - Class on the Select Report page.
  1. Click Star Reading on the Home page, then click Enterprise Home.

  2. Select your school from the School drop-down list, if necessary.
  3. Click Class below "State Standards" in the Enterprise Reports section of the Enterprise Home page.

  1. Select the options you want to customize for this report on the Report Options page. When you customize this report, you can choose these options:

    Use the drop-down list to choose all the students in a specific class, or click Students, Classes, or Groups to choose specific students, classes, or groups.

    "Groups" refers to groups of students that have been created specifically for reporting purposes.

    • When selecting specific students, you will see a checklist of all students enrolled in Star Reading classes. Check each student you want on the report, or check the Student box at the top of the column to select all of them.
    • When selecting specific classes, you will see a checklist of all Star Reading classes. Check each class you want on the report, or check the Class box at the top of the column to select all of them.
    • When selecting specific groups, you will see a checklist of all student groups in Star Reading classes. Check each group you want on the report, or check the Group box at the top of the column to select all of them.
    Once the desired students, classes, or groups have been selected and saved, you will return to the Report Options page.

    Reporting Parameter Group

    The State Standards - Class report shows data from test scores spanning a 30-day period. Enter the date you want to use as the end of this 30-day span. For example, if you choose April 15 as the date, the report will show data from all Star Reading Enterprise tests taken between March 17–April 15.

    Choose which standards will be shown on the report: the assessment standards for your own state, or the Common Core State Standards, which is a diverse group of standards for reading practice that has been adopted by multiple states. (The name of the state standards will vary depending on your state.)

    If your state has no assessment standards, the Common Core State Standards will be used.

    Projected growth is an estimate of how much improvement a student or group of students should experience between the current date and a future date based on Star Reading test results to date.

    The end of the school year is the default date, but a different date can be selected; you can also choose not to include this data in the report.

    If you enter a custom date for Show Projected Growth that is earlier than the date picked for the Reporting Period, then growth cannot be calculated for some or all of the students.

    Choose whether to use the trend score or the student's actual Scaled Score from the most recent test to determine the student's suggested skills.

    Choose how to group the information on the report: by grade, teacher, or class.

    Note: This report uses both the Group By and Sort By options; on the report, the Group By option is applied first.

    Choose how to sort information on the report: by students' rank or name (alphabetical order).

    Note: This report uses both the Group By and Sort By options; on the report, the Group By option is applied first.

    Use this option to put the different standards (chosen in the Select Standards to Show option) on separate pages.

    Use this option to print a list of the options you've chosen on the report. If you decide to run the report again at a later date, you can refer to this list of options to make sure you're using the same ones.

  2. Click View Report when you are finished choosing options.
  3. Star Reading will generate the report. When it's ready, the report will open in Adobe Reader, or your default PDF reader.
