Deactivating and Reactivating Star Reading Tests
Who can do this with default user permissions?
District Level Administrators, District Staff, School Level Administrators
Although you cannot permanently delete a Star Reading test from a student's test record, you can deactivate a test. For example, if a student logged in with the wrong user name and took a test, that test should be deactivated so it will not be included in the other student's test history.
Deactivating a test removes the test-taking data and the test results from any reports or calculations for that student. If necessary, a deactivated test can be reactivated at a later time.
Third Grade Reading Proficiency Assessments can also be deactivated and reactivated; follow the steps under "Method 1—Using the Star Record Book" below.
Deactivated tests will not be used when calculating SGPs. If a student has a test deactivated, and that test had been used to calculate the student's SGP, that student's SGP will be recalculated approximately 5–10 minutes after the test deactivation.
- Log in to Renaissance.
- On the Home page, select Star Reading; in the drop-down list, select Record Book.
- Use the drop-down lists in the upper-left corner of the Record Book to select the subject (select Reading to see Star Reading assessments), the school the student is in, and the class or group for the student is in. Note that school administrators who are only assigned to one school will not need to select a school.
- In the table at the bottom of the page, select the student's name. This will open the Student Details page for that student, where you will see a list of all of the student's reading assessments.
- In the row for the test you want to deactivate or reactivate, use the drop-down list in the Actions column. In the confirmation message that opens, select Deactivate Assessment or Reactivate Assessment, whichever is appropriate.
Test-taking data for a deactivated test is removed and the test results will not be used for any reports or calculations for the student.
Test-taking data for a reactivated test is restored and the test results will be used for reports and calculations for the student.
