Editing Goals

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District-level administrators, school-level administrators, teachers

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

Follow the steps to edit goals that you have set:

  1. To go to the Goals & Benchmarks page, on the Home page, select Star Reading, Star Early Literacy, or Star Math; then, select Manage Goals & Benchmarks.

  2. At the bottom of the Goals & Benchmarks page, click Select (either the link or the button) to choose which students' goals you would like to edit. (If a class or students are already selected, the button name will be Change Selection instead.)

    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 edit. When you're done, 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 chosen. The Apply and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

  3. Use the check boxes to choose whether to see goals that are upcoming (the goal time period has not started), goals that are in progress, and/or goals that are completed (for which the end date has passed).

  4. Each type of goal that you have set will be listed. (Each type of goal will only be listed once for each subject.) To see the status of a goal for the students, select the arrow to the left of the goal type.

    The Goal Status page, showing the goals for all students in a specific class. The arrow to the left of the goal has been selected. For each student's goal, the subject, start and end date, goal score, actual score, and status are shown. The Edit and Delete links are in the far right column of each student's row.

    For each type of goal, you will see the subject, the date range, the goal, the student's actual performance, and the status.

    For goals that are in the future (the time period has not started yet), the status will be Upcoming. If the goal has started, but the end date hasn't arrived yet, the status is In Progress. After the end date, the status shows whether the student has achieved the goal (Achieved or Not Achieved).

  5. Select Edit at the end of the row for the student goal that you want to edit. (You can edit goals for one student at a time.)

  6. On the next page, you cannot change the selected student, the subject, or the type of goal. However, you can change the goal options (dates and the work that applies). If you make any changes, select Apply.

    The Edit Goal page. You can select the 'Goal start and end dates' field to change the dates, and if there is more than one type of test that can apply to the goal, you can change the selections. The Apply and Save Goals buttons are at the bottom.

  7. At the bottom of the page, change the goals as needed.
  8. Select Save Goals to save your changes. (To go back to Goals & Benchmarks without making changes, select < Back at the top of the page.)
