State Standards Mastery - Class Report

The State Standards Mastery - Class Report shows you the levels of mastery that students in a class have achieved in relation to your state standards, based on the students' most recent Star assessments, both Enterprise and non-Enterprise. (Note: This does not include Star Custom assessments.)

It also gives you a prediction of what students' mastery levels will be at the end of the school year. In addition to English, mastery can also be shown for Spanish (for students who have taken Star Early Literacy Spanish, Star Math Spanish, or Star Reading Spanish assessments).

How do I get to this page?

  1. Log in to Renaissance.
  2. On the Home page, select Star Reading, Star Early Literacy, or Star Math. In the drop-down list, select Reports.

  3. On the Star / Assessments tab of the Reports page, under “State Performance and Mastery,” select State Standards Mastery - Class Report.

Alternative method:

  1. Log in to Renaissance.
  2. On the Home page, select Reports; in the drop-down list, select Star / Assessment. (Note: If you would normally only have access to Star/assessment reports, there will be no drop-down list; selecting Reports will take you directly to the Star / Assessments tab.)

  3. On the Star / Assessments tab of the Reports page, under “State Performance and Mastery,” select State Standards Mastery - Class Report.

  1. At the top of the page, select Change Students....

    • In the pop-up window, if there is a Schools column, select a school. (This column isn't available if you only have access to one school.)
    • If the Teachers column is available, select the teacher whose class or group you want to create the report for. This column is not available to teachers—they can only create this report for their own classes or groups.

      You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.

    • In the Classes column, select a single class or group.
    • Teachers will see a Groups column between the Classes and Students columns, where they can choose any or all groups of students they have created.

    • You may need to scroll to the right to see the Students column. At the top of the Students column, choose either All Students (to choose all the students) or Select Students (to choose specific students; check the ones you want in the list).
    • When you are done making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
  2. After you have made your choices, select Update Report.

    If you change the students the report is being created for, you will need to select Update Report again to make the data refresh.

  3. Each table in the report focuses on a single domain group. The domains in that group are listed at the top of the table, and abbreviated versions of the standards belonging to each domain are shown underneath. You can hover on a standard to see a complete description of it.

  4. In the row for each student, you can see the student's level of mastery for each standard, based on the student's most recent assessments. Note that these are not test scores: they represent the level of mastery the student has for each standard: Beginning (0–59% mastery), Developing (60–79% mastery), or Secure (80–100% mastery).

    If the table is too wide to fit the screen, a scrollbar will appear below it.

    If a cell in the table shows two dashes ( -- ), it means the student didn't get any questions related to that standard in any assessments taken within the school year.

    If a row in the table says "No assessment data available," it means the student hasn't taken any assessments of the type being shown in the report yet.

  5. English mastery is shown by default, and is based on assessments taken in English. Spanish mastery is based on assessments taken in Spanish. You can switch between English and Spanish mastery by making your choice above the tables. The data in the tables will update automatically.

  6. To view projected mastery data, select the Projected Mastery toggle above the upper-right corner of the first table to turn it On. Each table cell with a current mastery value will have an estimated mastery value for the end of the school year added to it, in a circle to the right (the background color of the circle will correlate to the Beginning/Developing/Secure percentages). The values are research-based: 50% of students with the current scores are expected to reach the estimated values by the end of the school year.

    At the time of this writing, Spanish projected mastery data is unavailable.

  7. Printing works a little differently for this report compared to others. When you select in the upper-right corner, you can select one of two options:

    • Generate PDF of the current screen: This will create a PDF of all the tables on the screen, which you can then view or download. If a table is too wide to fit on a page, the overflow columns will break to a "continued" table beneath it.

      If one of the selected classes has students from multiple grades in it, multiple tabs will open during the PDF creation process. You will need to allow pop-ups in order for the reports to generate and print correctly.

    • Generate PDF of individual student mastery: This creates a PDF with separate reports for each student, with page breaks between the students. In each report, full descriptions of the standards are listed, along with the students' mastery level for each.

    You can get reports for individual students by selecting the student's name. The PDF created is the same as the second one described above, but it will only show mastery data for the selected student.

    When projected mastery is turned On and a PDF for a single student is created, the PDF will include current and projected scores.

    We recommend printing one of these reports at the start of the school year after your students have taken their first Star assessment(s). This will give you an initial "milestone" that you can compare subsequent mastery levels to later in the school year.

    If you'd like a hard copy of all the state standards (for reference purposes), print a PDF for a single student and then cut off the top and right sides:

  8. To return to the Reports page, select either Back to Reports or the report icon    at the top of the screen.
