The Send Home Letter provides information to parents that allows parents and students to log in to the software from home using Home Connect. If your school has Accelerated Reader, Renaissance Home Connect allows students to see their progress on Accelerated Reader quizzes and their reading goals. If your school has Star products only, parents can use Renaissance Home Connect to sign up for email updates when their child takes a Star test.
Note that although students can see their scores and progress in Renaissance Home Connect, they cannot take quizzes or tests or complete assignments.
