How does Freckle integrate with Star Assessments?

Students can use their Star Math and Star Reading scores to get immediate access to differentiated Freckle content. The connection combines the rigorous, research-backed Star Assessments with the engaging, day-to-day practice in Freckle—all with little to no work by the teacher.

The connection will take students' Star scores and update their levels in Freckle. This means that for Math and Reading, students can skip Freckle pre-tests, and automatically start at their level based on their Star performance. Students can immediately access Freckle's adaptive practice, and you can trust that every student is getting the differentiated help that they need to grow.

Here's how it works:

  1. If you have both Star and Premium Freckle at your school or district, have your administrator talk to their Freckle representative to get the integration turned on for Star Math and/or Star Reading.
  2. Once the integration is turned on, all administrators for the school will receive an email with instructions on how to set it up. They should forward that information to the teachers using both Star and Freckle in their classrooms.
  3. When students log in to their Freckle account at, they'll see the option to connect to Star in their dashboard:

    When they select Connect, they'll be taken to the same login screen that they see for the Star test. Students should log in using their Renaissance ID and password.

    Note that students will only have to do this once. Once the connection between the student's account in Freckle and Star is established, Star scores will sync automatically without any actions required by the teacher or student.
  4. Once a student is connected, they'll be taken back to their Freckle dashboard, and that's it! Moving forward, their Freckle math and reading levels will be automatically updated when they take a Star test.
