Use this preference for students whose reading ability is not as strong as their math ability (to the extent that not being able to read questions is affecting their score). Students should use headphones when taking a Star Math or Star Math Spanish test with audio.

  1. After you select Star Math Audio on the Preferences page, use the Schools , Classes , and Students drop-down lists to choose which students to set the preference for.

    The Schools, Classes, and Students 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.)
    • All of the students in the selected classes will be shown in the Students list. You can check them one at a time, or you can choose Select All at the bottom to check/uncheck all of the students at once. (If you only have access to one student, you will not need to select them.)
  2. For each student, check (or uncheck) the Audio enabled box after the student's name, in the Setting column .

    The setting for the preference for three students 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 students shown at the same time, select Set All... , check (or uncheck) the Audio enabled box , and then select Apply to All .

    The Set All button has been selected; the setting for all students 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.

If a student is taking a test without audio enabled, pauses it, and then the preference is set to enable audio before the test is resumed, the test will still not have audio when it is resumed. The student will need to cancel the test and start a new one in order for the preference setting to take effect.
