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, you will see the classes and groups available to you and the current setting of the preference for each. Select the expanding section of the "Settings for..." sentence to choose which classes or groups you want to set the preference for.

  2. In the pop-up window:

    • If you have access to multiple schools, you will need to select one school in the Schools column before you can select classes or groups.
    • In the Classes and Groups column , you can choose All Classes and Groups to select all the available classes and groups, or you can choose Select Classes and Groups and then check individual classes or groups to set the preference for.
    • You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.

  3. After making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close the pop-up without saving your selections).

  4. 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.

    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 .

  5. 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.

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