Deactivating (and Reactivating) Star CBM Assessments

Follow the steps below if you need to deactivate a student's assessment. Deactivated assessments can be reactivated later if necessary as described below the steps; you can also assess the student on the measure again.

Who can do this with the standard user permissions?

District Level Administrators, School Level Administrators, Teachers

  1. First, select Star CBM Reading or Star CBM Math on the Renaissance Home page to open the Record Book and the CBM Assessments tab.
  2. Select the student's name.
  3. On the Student Details page, the Star CBM tab will be selected, and you'll see one or more tables listing the assessments that the student has taken. Find the assessment that you want to deactivate in the table(s); then, in the Actions column for that assessment, select next to "View Details"; then, select Deactivate.
  4. A window will open to confirm the details for the assessment. Make sure you are deactivating the correct assessment. To continue, select Deactivate Assessment. (If you don't want to continue, select Cancel instead.)
  5. In the Actions column for the assessment, you will see a "Deactivating" message and a circle that shows the task is in progress. Go back to the class view. When the process is complete, you'll see "Deactivated" instead of the score on the Student Details page, and the score will be removed from the class Star Record Book tabs.

Reactivating Assessments

You can reactivate an assessment that has been deactivated. Simply go back to the Student Details page by following steps 1 and 2 above. The deactivated assessment will be listed, with a "Reactivate" option in the Actions column. Click Reactivate.

A message will remind you that the reactivated score will be included in all future reporting. If you want to continue, select Reactivate Assessment. (If not, select Cancel.)

You will see a "Reactivating" message in the Actions column. Go back to the class view. When Star CBM has finished reactivating your assessment, you will see the score and assessment options on the Student Details page as before, and the score will be included elsewhere as well (such as in the class view and the Measure Chart).
