Who can do this with default user permissions?

District Level Administrators, District Staff

In any situation where a benchmark is needed (for example, when creating a report), if the user doesn't choose a specific benchmark to use, the default benchmark is used. The default benchmark is used by all schools in a district and is set on a product-by-product basis.

  1. Use one of the methods listed above to open the View Benchmarks page.
  2. Select Edit Default Benchmark.
  3. In the window that opens, select the default benchmark to be used for each product listed (district, school, or state).

    In the pop-up window, each Star product used by the schools in the district is listed; each has a drop-down list where you can select the default benchmark. The Save and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

    • State benchmarks are only available for Star Reading English and Star Math English.
    • If you change a benchmark, it will be outlined in blue (as shown for Star Early Literacy Spanish in the image above)—this highlight will remain until you save your changes.
    • Changes to a default benchmark will not take effect until the next school day.
  4. Select Save (or Cancel to close the pop-up window without saving your changes).
