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

  1. After you select Indiana Star Assessments 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. 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.

    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.

       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 .

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