Who can do this with default user permissions?

  • District Level Administrators: any student in any school in the district

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 Audio on the Preferences page, you will see the students available to you and the current setting of the preference for each. Select the expanding section of the "Settings for..." sentence to choose which students 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 a class or group.
    • In the Classes and Groups column , select the class that has the students you want to set the preference for.
    • In the Students column , you can choose All Students to select all the students in the class or group, or you can choose Select Students and then check individual students 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 student, check (or uncheck) the Audio enabled box after the student's name, in the Setting column .

    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 .

  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.
