Target on the Fan Graph
A Target Star Reading Scaled Score is shown on each student's fan graph under Growth and Achievement (721 in the example below).
The Target shows what Scaled Score the student needs to achieve this year to be on track to reach or maintain proficiency within 3 years (based on state benchmarks). The Target takes into account the first Star Reading test of the school year (typically fall), the 3-year timeframe, and the minimum Scaled Score required for proficiency. (Not all students will take 3 years to reach the target.) The Target does not change after the first test of the school year. The Target is not shown for students who have not taken a Star Reading test in the past 18 months.
