How Schoolzilla Starter Relates to Star Reports

Schoolzilla Starter gives you powerful, high-level insight into students' performance based on Star tests. In the Schoolzilla Starter Dashboards, you can see:

  • The proficiency rate and students' benchmark categories based on district benchmarks set in your Star software (When you set district benchmark categories, you choose the category that represents the minimum proficiency level.)
  • The estimated proficiency rate and students' benchmark categories based on students' estimated state benchmark scores
  • Students' Student Growth Percentiles and growth categories

Star reports and dashboards also provide information about your students' proficiency and Student Growth Percentiles. See the table below. Note: Schoolzilla Starter uses District screening windows to show data, while Star reports often use School screening windows; for more about screening windows, see Viewing Screening Windows.

Data in Schoolzilla Equivalent Data in Star Reports/Dashboards

District Proficiency (English and Spanish): % of students at or above the district benchmark minimum proficiency level on the Star assessment and the number of students in benchmark categories.*

State Proficiency (English only): Estimated % of students at or above the state benchmark on the Star assessment and students at benchmark levels.*

* You can see individual students' results and benchmark levels on the Our Students and Student Profile dashboards.

Consolidated Assessment Proficiency Report Includes the number and percentage of students who are proficient based on their Percentile Rank, Normal Curve Equivalent, or Student Growth Percentile scores and the proficiency score that you select for the report. (The selected score is used instead of benchmark categories.)
Consolidated Progress Report, Consolidated Ranking Report, and Consolidated Status Report Options can be chosen to report on students who are at/above or below the Percentile Rank or Normal Curve Equivalent proficiency score that you select.
Star Screening Report How many students are in each benchmark category and how many are above and below benchmark for District, School, or State benchmarks. (State benchmarks are available for Star Reading and Star Math.)
Star State Performance - Class Report The number and percentage of students who are on a pathway to proficiency on the state summative tests.
Star State Performance - Student Report A graph for each student who has tested showing that student's pathway to proficiency on the state summative tests.
Administrator Dashboards Dashboards on the Administrator tab of the Reports page are available to show you the forecast state benchmarks for reading and math as well as the percentage of students predicted to be at/above or below state benchmarks for reading and math.
Current Student Growth Percentiles (English and Spanish): Percentage of students at or above the goal for the current Student Growth Percentile and students in growth categories.

The Our Students and Student Profile dashboards show the current Student Growth Percentile for each student.


Star Growth Report Students' growth over time, including Student Growth Percentiles, the students' scores on each test taken during the report timeframe, and the change in scores between the last two tests.

Other reports on the Star / Assessment and Administrator tabs of the Reports page can give you more insight into Star test data. These reports include other scores reported by the Star software.
