The Star Goal History Report is used to monitor how well students are progressing toward their Star assessment goals. The report includes the goal start and end dates and the students' actual achievements for the time period.

  1. Select Change Assignment Type... to choose the assignment types to include in the report.



    In the pop-up window, select the application you want to generate the report for:

    • Star Early Literacy Assessment (English)
    • Star Early Literacy Assessment (Spanish)
    • Star Math Assessment (English)
    • Star Math Assessment (Spanish)
    • Star Reading Assessment (English)
    • Star Reading Assessment (Spanish)
    The applications are listed; the Apply and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

    After you select an application, a second column (Assignments) will open. In this column, select a single type of assignment.


    In the example above, the user selected Star Reading English Assessment for the application and Star Reading Enterprise Assessment (English) for the assignment.

    Select Apply (or Cancel to close this pop-up without saving your selection).
  2. Select Change Students... to choose whose data you want to see in the report.



    • Teachers can only choose students in their own classes and groups.
    • 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.)
    • In this example, School 5 is the selected school, Brittany Spencer is the selected teacher, the 'All Classes' option has been chosen for classes, and 'Whole Classes' has been chosen for groups. The Apply and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

    • If the Teachers column is available, at the top of the column, choose either All Teachers (to choose all the teachers in the school) or Select Teachers (to choose specific teachers; check the ones you want in the list).

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

    • At the top of the Classes column, choose either All Classes (to choose all the classes for the teachers) or Select Classes (to choose specific classes; check the ones you want in the list).
    • Teachers and school staff will also see a Groups column. At the top of the Groups column, choose either All Groups or Select Groups; if you choose Select Groups, check the groups that you want to include. The first choice in the column is "Whole Class" or "Whole Classes"; choose this to report on the class(es) as a whole. Below that, you will see any groups that you 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).
    • In this example, a fifth column, Students, is shown, with the 'All Students' option selected. The Apply and Cancel buttons are at the bottom.

      When you are done making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
  3. By default, the "All" option is chosen for Ethnicity, Gender, Language, and Grade Level. To reduce the scope, choose the "Select" option at the top of the appropriate column and then check your selections in that column.


    In the example above, the user has selected two Languages and three Grade Levels, while leaving Ethnicity and Gender at the default "All" options. Note: The Filter Reports by Ethnicity user permission may be set to prevent the use of ethnicities as a filter.

    By default, the "All" option is chosen for Characteristics. To reduce the scope, choose Select Characteristics... and then check each characteristic you want students in the report to have. You must also choose any or all (after "Include students with") to specify whether students with any of the selected characteristics will be included in the report or only those with all of the selected characteristics.


    In the example above, the user selected two Characteristics (ADA and ESL). Because any is selected, the report will include students who are ADA, ESL, or both. If all had been selected, only students who are both ADA and ESL would be included. Note: The Filter Reports by Characteristics user permission may be set to prevent the use of characteristics as a filter.


    Once you are finished choosing demographic options, select Apply at the bottom of the window to save your choices (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
  4. Use the Date Range drop-down list to choose the dates you want to generate the report for. You can select an existing marking period, screening window, All Time, or you can select Custom... and set your own dates (use the calendars to select a range of dates or type them in the fields using m/d/yyyy format; then select Apply to use the dates you have chosen or Cancel to close this pop-up without saving your selection).)
    The user has chosen to select custom dates. A pop-up calendar is open, allowing the user to choose the dates. The dates can also be entered in the fields above the calendar. The Apply and Cancel buttons are in the upper-right corner of the pop-up window.

    If schools use their own unique date ranges within a district screening window, those ranges will all have the same name. To help you tell them apart, the dates they cover will be added to the end of the name.

  5. Check Hide Groups Without Data if you want to have students without test data omitted from the report.

  6. Once you are done choosing report options, select Update Report.
  7. The report will generate and then open at the bottom of the page.



    For the selected students, you will see any Star goals they had set within the chosen date range, what those goals were, and whether they achieved them or not. Students who had no goals set will be listed with "No Goals Set" in place of the date range.
  8. You can change any of the options you have selected and then regenerate the report by selecting Update Report.
  9. To print the report, select the PDF icon at the top of the screen: .
  10. To return to the Reports page, select either Back to Reports or the report icon    at the top of the screen.
