Indiana Star Assessments - Individual Student Preference

   The Indiana Star Assessments - School Preference must also be set in order for students to take the Indiana test. If the school preference isn't enabled for your school, the link for the individual student preference will not be shown.

Both preferences are only available for schools in the state of Indiana.

District Level Administrators, School Level Administrators, Teachers

Students in Indiana are automatically set up to take the Indiana tests; this preference lets you opt students out of the Indiana test.

  1. To choose which students to apply the preference to, use the Select learning units link to open the pop-up window .
  2. In the pop-up window, select a school and class/group in the Schools and Classes and Groups columns. (If you only have access to a single school or a single class/group, you will not need to make a selection.)

  3. In the selected class/group, you can choose All Students to use the same preference setting for all the students, or choose Select Students and then check the students you want to set the preference for .
  4. Select Apply (or Cancel to close this window).

    If a district level administrator or school level administrator selects students in a school that doesn't have district screening windows assigned, a message will tell them "The Indiana Star test is not enabled for the selected school." when they select Apply.

  5. In the list of students, check Opt out in the row for a student to opt that student out of taking the Star Math Indiana and/or Star Reading Indiana test.



       Students that are opted out will default to taking the Star Reading Enterprise and Star Math Enterprise assessments (or Star Math Algebra or Star Math Geometry if the Math Test Type Preference has been set for the student).


    To set the same preference for all the students shown at the same time, select Set All... , check (or uncheck) the Opt out box(es) for Star Math and/or Star Reading , and then select Apply to All .

  6. Select Save Changes to opt out the selected students, or Cancel to close the pop-up window without saving your changes if you wish.
  7. Select Back to return to the Preferences page.
