Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Level Administrators, District Staff, School Level Administrators, School Staff, Teachers

The State Standards - Student Report shows estimates of students' mastery of their state's grade-level standards or the Common Core State Standards. Depending on the setting of the Lexile® Measures Preference, the Lexile® Measure may also be shown.

The report aligns state standards to the Star Reading Scaled Score, so that the user can compare where a student's test is on the scale in relation to the standard.

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

There are two ways to begin printing the State Standards - Student 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 - Student 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 Student 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.

    The State Standards - Student 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.

    There are three mastery standards that normally appear in tables on this report (Above, Within, and Below Estimated Mastery Range). Since you may not need or want to see data for all three standards, this option allows you to remove some of the tables from the report. (The name of the state standards will vary depending on your state.)

    Use this option to choose whether to show each student's GE score on the report.

    Choose this option to have students' ID numbers included on this report.

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

  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.
