On this page, you can see information for a group of students that you selected on the Benchmark Transitions page - either students in a specific benchmark group in the starting screening window or students who transitioned to a specific group in the ending screening window.

How to Get to This Page

  1. First, go to the Star CBM Data Insights page using one of two methods:
    • On the Home page, select Star CBM Reading or Star CBM Math; then, select Data Insights from the menu that opens.
    • On the Home page, select Reports; then, select Star CBM Data Insights.
  2. Then, for either the Reading or Math % Moving Up tile, select Explore the data.
  3. Use the drop-down lists to choose the data you want to see and the screening windows that you want to include. Then, select Update. (Note that the data shown will only include students who have tested in both screening windows.)
  4. Select the number of students in a specific category to see detailed information for those students. You can select students in a specific category in the starting screening window or students who transitioned to a specific category in the ending screening window.

Star CBM screening measures have three benchmark categories 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.

Using the Table

The table lists the students in the group that you selected on the Benchmark Transitions page - the heading above the table will remind you which students you've chosen to see.

For each student, the table includes:

  • the student's name
  • grade level (GL) at the time the assessment was administered
  • the student's scores for the starting and ending screening windows that you selected on the previous page, including:
    • Correct Per Minute score with a circle showing the benchmark category
    • Percentile Rank score
    • the measure that the student was tested on (Measure names are abbreviated; see the the tip below for more information about the measures with benchmarks available and their abbreviations.)

    Each year, Star CBM includes three screening windows, whose dates cannot be changed:

    • Fall Starts on the school year start date or August 1 (whichever is earlier) and runs through November 30.
    • Winter is from December 1 through March 31.
    • Spring begins April 1 and runs through the end of the school year or July 31.

    The measures that have benchmarks available for students are based on the students' grade; see the table below.
