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.
Follow these steps to print the report:
Select Export Report. Note: The button may not appear to be active until you hover the cursor over it.
- If you are not already on the Reports page, select Reports on the Home page; then, select Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice or Star / Assessment in the menu that opens. (If you only have access to one type of report, you may go directly to the Reports page as soon as you select Reports.)
When you go to the Reports page, the tab that is open by default depends on the choice you made in the menu.
- Select Home Connect Send Home Letter in the Parent Reports section of the Accelerated Reader/Reading Practice tab or from the Parents and Other Reports section of the Star/Assessments tab. (If you have added the report to the Pinned Reports, you'll find it under that section at the top of the page.)
