Star Scores in Schoolzilla Starter

Schoolzilla Starter includes students who have taken a Star test and gotten a benchmark score in a district screening window. Only tests taken in a district screening window are shown, and only for schools that use the district screening windows. If students have taken more than one test in a district screening window, only the most recent test is included for benchmark metrics.

Score What It Shows Star Tests It Is Shown For
Star Proficiency (District Benchmark) - English and Spanish

For the district and schools, this shows the percentage of students who are at or above the district benchmark minimum proficiency level on the Star assessment.

For individual students, the Our Students and Student Profile dashboards show each student's Percentile Rank, categorized based on its benchmark category.

  • Star Reading
  • Star Math
  • Star Early Literacy
  • Star Reading Spanish
  • Star Math Spanish
  • Star Early Literacy Spanish
Star Proficiency Rate (State Benchmark)

For the district and schools, this shows the estimated percentage of students who are at or above the state benchmark on the Star assessment.

For individual students, the Our Students and Student Profile dashboards show the student's most recent estimated benchmark level for the upcoming state test (with 1 being the lowest level).

Student Growth Percentile - English and Spanish

For the district and schools, this shows the percentage of students at or above the goal for current Student Growth Percentile based on the students' earliest Fall score and their latest score in the current window. (Note: This differs from Star reports, which may use another window's test as a starting point; Star reports may use window-specific Student Growth Percentiles instead of current Student Growth Percentiles. For more about Star and SGPs, see Student Growth Percentiles.)

For students, the Our Students and Student Profile dashboards show the current Student Growth Percentiles.
