Math Test Type Preference

How do I get to this page?

There are two ways to get to this preference—use whichever method you prefer.

Method 1:

  1. Log in to Renaissance.
  2. On the Home page, select your name in the upper-right corner. In the drop-down list, select Edit Preferences.

  3. On the Preferences page, select Math Test Type in the Class Preferences section of the page.

Method 2:

  1. Log in to Renaissance.
  2. On the Home page, select Star Math. In the drop-down list, select Preferences.

  3. On the Preferences page, select Math Test Type in the Class Preferences section of the page.

Who can do this with default user permissions?

  • District Level Administrators: any class or group in any school in the district
  • School Level Administrators: any class or group in their own school
  • Teachers: any of their own classes or groups

Use this preference to select the type of questions a student in grades 7–12 will be given on the Star Math test: the default "Enterprise" combination of math/algebra/geometry questions, algebra questions only, or geometry questions only. (For more information, see "Star Math Algebra and Geometry Assessments.")

Although this preference can be set for classes or groups of students in mixed grades, it will not affect any students in those classes or groups who are in grades 6 or lower—they will receive the default "Enterprise" combination of math/algebra/geometry questions.

  1. After you select Math Test Type on the Preferences page, use the Schools and Classes drop-down lists to choose which classes to set the preference for.

    The Schools and Classes drop-down lists.

    • You can only select one school at a time; only the school(s) available to you will be shown in the list. (If you only have access to one school, you will not need to select it.)
    • All of the classes you have access to will be shown in the Classes list. You can check them one at a time, or you can choose Select All at the bottom to check/uncheck all of the classes at once. (If you only have access to one class, you will not need to select it.)
  2. For each class or group, select Enterprise, Algebra, or Geometry to determine what type of questions students in that class or group will see on a test.

    The setting for the preference in two classes is shown in a table. The Save Changes, Set All, and Undo Changes buttons are above the table.

    To set the same preference for all the classes or groups shown at the same time, select Set All... , select Enterprise, Algebra, or Geometry , and then select Apply to All .

    The Set All button has been selected; the setting for all classes is in a pop-up window. The Apply to All and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

  3. When you have finished making your changes, select Save Changes to save them (you will see a confirmation message once your changes have been saved). You can also select Undo Changes to undo your changes to the preference setting.

  4. Select Back at the top of the page to return to the Preferences page when you are done.
