On this page, you can see which students' scores are in the category that you selected on the Star CBM Data Insights - Measure Proficiency page (for the screening window that you selected). You may have selected one of these categories:

  • One of the benchmark categories if benchmarks are available. For Star CBM Reading and Star CBM Math, the categories are At/Above Benchmark, On Watch, or Intervention. For Star CBM Lectura, the categories are Satisfactory/Optimal or Alert.
  • Off-grade (closest benchmark met), which means benchmarks aren't available for the students' grade and season, but their scores are At/Above Benchmark (for Star CBM Reading and Math) or Satisfactory/Optimal (for Star CBM Lectura) for the nearest grade and season with benchmarks.
  • Off-grade (no benchmark), which means benchmarks aren't available for the students' grade and season, and their scores would not be in the At/Above Benchmark category (for Star CBM Reading or Math) or the Satisfactory/Optimal category (for Star CBM Lectura) for the nearest grade and season with benchmarks.

When benchmarks are available for Star CBM Reading or Math assessments (based on the measure, grade, and season), three categories are available: At/Above Benchmark (green), On Watch (blue), and Intervention (red). Scores within the At/Above Benchmark category are considered proficient. For detailed information about the scores that fall into each benchmark category for different measures and grades, see Star CBM Score and Benchmark Tables.

When benchmarks are available for Star CBM Lectura assessments (based on the measure, grade, and season), two categories are available: Satisfactory/Optimal (green) and Alert (red). Scores within the Satisfactory/Optimal category are considered proficient. For detailed information about the scores that fall into each benchmark category for different measures and grades, see Star CBM Lectura Score and Benchmark Tables.

Using the Table

The table lists the students whose scores are in the category that you selected on the previous page (and for the screening window you selected). The date when this data was last updated is above the table, below the information about the selected students.

For students who tested on the measure more than once in the screening window, only the first assessment is included.

For each student, the table includes:

  • the student's name
  • grade level (GL) at the time the assessment was administered
  • Correct Per Minute score and a circle in the color of the benchmark category or a gray circle when no benchmarks are available - a check mark next to a score with a gray circle means that the score would be At/Above benchmark (for Star CBM Reading or Math) or Satisfactory/Optimal (for Star CBM Lectura) for the nearest grade and season with benchmarks
  • Percentile Rank score (not available if no benchmarks are available for the grade and season)
  • the measure that the student was tested on
  • The recommended screening measure for each student is based on the student's grade; see the table below. Since Proficiency Rate is based on the scores on the recommended measures for all students, different measures are included in the rate based on the grades of the students in your school(s).
