Summary Report

Who can do this with default capabilities?

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

This report summarizes students' results from the last test taken within the selected reporting period. It includes each student's name, class, the type of test taken, teacher, test date, rank, Scaled Score (SS), Grade Equivalent (GE), Grade Placement (GP), Percentile Rank (PR), Normal Curve Equivalent (NCE), Instructional Reading Level (IRL), Estimated Oral Reading Fluency (ORF), and Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). The report also shows a summary of the scores, the PR distribution, the IRL distribution, and the GE distribution. Depending on the setting of the Lexile® Measures Preference, the Lexile® Measure and Lexile® Range may also be shown.

Although kindergartners can take Star Reading tests, data for kindergartners has not been norm-referenced. Therefore, on this report, no values will be shown for Percentile Rank (PR) and/or Normal Curve Equivalents (NCE) for kindergartners.

Teachers can only generate a Summary Report for the current school year.

The report will indicate if any students took a test using extended time limits, with a footnote explanation.
