Star CBM - Record Audio Preference

Teachers, school administrators, and district administrators can use this preference to set whether the audio for Star CBM assessments may be recorded for each individual student. Please note:

  • If the Star CBM - Audio Recordings district preference does not allow recording, the settings of this student preference (Star CBM - Audio Recordings) will have no effect.
  • Even if recordings are allowed, the teacher or staff member who administers the assessment must choose to have it recorded.
  • Only Online and Mixed format assessments may be recorded.

How to get to this preference

To get to the Star CBM - Record Audio preference page, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home page, select your name in the top right corner. Then, choose Edit Preferences from the menu that appears.
  2. Select Star CBM - Record Audio under the Individual Student Preferences on the Preferences page.

How to set the preference

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District-level administrators, school-level administrators, teachers

District-level administrators can set the preference for students in all classes at all schools. School-level administrators can set the preference for students in all classes at their schools. Teachers can set the preference for students in their classes. Other staff cannot set the preference unless they have been granted special permissions, but they can view the settings.

  1. By default, one of your classes is selected, and all of the students in the class are listed.
  2. If you want to set the preference for students in a different class, select the link under the preference name.

    If necessary, select a school in the first column. Select a single class in the second column.

    In the third column, you can either select All Students or choose Select Students and check the students that you want to set the preference for. When you're done, select Apply.

    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. The students in the class are listed. For each student, check the box if you want to allow audio to be recorded during the student's Online or Mixed Star CBM assessments. The teacher administering the assessments must still choose to record audio, and if the district Star CBM - Audio Recordings preference does not allow recording, the setting of this preference won't have any effect.
  4. If you want to use the same setting for all of the selected students, select Set All above the table.

    In the popup window, choose the setting that you prefer from each drop-down list; then, select Apply to All. (You still need to save your changes.)

  5. Select Save Changes to save your settings. (Select < Back to go back to the Preferences page.)
