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.

  1. On the Home page, select your name in the top right corner. Then, choose Edit Preferences from the menu that appears.
