How to Set a Goal

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District-level administrators, school-level administrators, teachers

District-level administrators can set goals for all classes and students at all schools. School-level administrators can set goals for all classes and students at their schools. Teachers can set goals for their classes and students. Other staff cannot view or set goals unless they have been granted more permissions.

Follow these steps:

  1. At the top of the Set a Goal page, click the Select link or the Select button to the right. (If a class is already selected, you can select the Change Selection button to choose a different one.)

  2. In the window that opens, choose the school in the first column if necessary. Then, choose a class in the second column. (You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.) In the third column, first choose whether to select all students in the class or some (Select Students). If you choose "Select Students," check the students whose goals you want to set. When you're finished, select Apply.

    A single school and a single class have been selected in the Schools and Classes columns. In the Students column, 'All Students' has been selected. The Apply and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

    You can only set Star goals for classes that have at least one of the following products assigned: Star Early Literacy, Star Early Literacy Spanish, Star Math, Star Math Spanish, Star Reading, and/or Star Reading Spanish.

    To set reading practice goals for the quizzes that students take in Accelerated Reader, see Accelerated Reader Goals (Record Book). To set reading certification goals, see Accelerated Reader Certifications (Record Book).

  3. Next, after "Type of goal," use the first drop-down list to choose the goal category: Reading, Reading Spanish, Math, or Math Spanish.

  4. Use the second drop-down list to choose the type of goal that you want to set.

    Reading has been selected for the goal category in the first drop-down list; the six different goal types for reading are available in the second drop-down list.

    These types of goals are available:

       For customers in Mississippi: The setting of the Star Scale Transition Preference determines whether Scaled Score Enterprise is an available goal type.

    For all other customers: Beginning in the 2022–2023 school year, only the Star Unified scale will be available; the preference will no longer be in the program, and Scaled Score Enterprise goals will no longer be available.
