florida b.e.s.t. standards and the star student report

For our customers in Florida, on the Star Student Report, domains are referred to as strands, and standards are referred to as benchmarks.

  1. On the Star Student Report page, use the Product Types drop-down list to choose one Star product to create the report for.

    • The report will include both Enterprise and Progress Monitoring tests.
    • Star Math Algebra and Star Math Geometry tests will not be included.
  2. Use the School drop-down list to select a school.

    • If you are assigned to only one school, you will not see the School drop-down list.
    • School administrators and school staff can only select their own schools.
    • Teachers can only select schools that they are assigned to.
  3. Use the Students drop-down list to select either a single class at the chosen school or All Classes at the chosen school.

    • School administrators and school staff can only select classes in their own school.
    • Teachers can only select their own classes.
    To select specific classes, groups, or students at the chosen school, use the links below the Students drop-down list. Selecting one of these links will open a corresponding pop-up window; in that window, enter search criteria in the field at the top of the window to find specific classes, groups, or students with names that start with the criteria you enter (in the "Select Students" pop-up window, you can also select a grade to narrow down the list of students). Once you've searched, check the box at the top of the list to select all the available choices, or make individual selections below it.
    Examples of the pop-up windows that appear when the Classes, Groups, or Students links are selected. In each case, a search field at the top lets you search for specific classes, groups, or students; a check box above the listed classes, groups, or students lets you select or deselect all of them at once; and the Clear All link, Cancel button, and Save Selection buttons are at the bottom. In the Select Students window, there is a drop-down list to the left of the search field where you can specify a single grade to search within.

    • School administrators and school staff can only select classes, groups, or students in their own school.
    • Teachers can only select their own classes, their own groups, or students enrolled in one of their own classes.
    • Select the arrow in the heading of a column to re-sort by the data in that column. The arrow indicates which column is being used for sorting and the order of the sort (up arrow = A–Z, down arrow = Z–A).
    Once you have made your choices, select Save Selection at the bottom of the pop-up window.
  4. 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).
  5. Use the Date Range drop-down list to choose the dates you want to generate the report for. Dates will be in the current school year. You can select the entire school year (which will include the entire school year up to the current date—this is the default setting), an existing marking period, or custom dates within the current school year.

    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.
  6. Use the Language drop-down list (to the right of Date Range) to choose whether to generate the report in English or Spanish.
  7. Use the Scale drop-down list to choose which scale to use when showing student test scores.

    • If the Product Type chosen earlier was one of the Reading or Reading Spanish products, the Lexile® scale will be an available option.
    • For customers in Mississippi, the Star Enterprise Scale will be an available option for all products.
    • If only one scale is available, you will not need to select it.
  8. Use the Benchmark Type drop-down list to choose which benchmarks will be shown on the report (State, District, or School).
  9. Check any of the remaining options you wish to use before generating the report:
    • Show Domain Scores to show students' domain scores in the learning progression domains.
    • Show SGP to include Student Growth Percentiles.
    • Show Student ID to include student ID numbers.
    • Hide Students without Data to exclude students without any test data from the report.
    • Show Reading Range & Instruction Level to show student's reading range (ZPD or Lexile®) and instructional reading level (IRL). Note: This option only applies to Reading and Reading Spanish products; if a Math product was chosen earlier, this option will not be shown.
  10. When you are finished selecting the options you want, select Update Report.
  11. The data shown on the report will vary based on the options you've selected; the following example shows data for a student's Star Reading assessments.

    An example report for a student's Star Reading assessments.

    • The top part shows the student's name, ID (if that option was selected), most recent test date, grade, school, and the subject for the chosen product.
    • Below that is the score of the student's most recent test (on the selected scale), the benchmark category that score puts them in, and their Percentile Rank. Also shown (if the relevant options were selected) are the student's Reading Range (ZPD) and Instructional Reading Level, and the student's SGP (with a bar chart indicating if the student's growth is considered Low [SGP 0–33], Typical [SGP 34–66], or High [SGP 66–99]).
    • Next is a record of the student's test activity: all tests taken with the selected product within the chosen dates are included. The data is shown as both a table and a graph.
    • Domain scores and the student's level of mastery in those domains (Beginning [0–59 percent], Developing [60–79 percent], or Secure [80–100 percent]) are shown at the bottom if that option was selected.
  12. You can change any of the options you've chosen and select Update Report to regenerate the report.
  13. Select PDF at the top of the page to create a PDF of the report which you can print or save.
