Viewing Student Progress Over Time
In Star CBM, there are two ways to monitor a student's progress during the school year: you can monitor student progress toward a specific goal or you can view a chart of all the student's tests this school year for a specific measure. On the Student Details page, you can also see students' assessments from past school years.
Seeing All Tests for a Measure During the School Year
To see a chart and table of all of a student's assessments for a measure during the current school year, on the CBM Assessments tab of the Star Record Book, select the student's latest score for the measure. Then, select the progress link for the measure at the bottom of the popup window to open the Measure Chart.
You will see a graph showing the student's assessments for the measure during this school year, separated by season (Fall, Winter, and Spring). For each score, the number correct per minute is in green, and the number of incorrect answers is in red. If benchmarks are available for the measure and season, you'll also see a dashed line that shows the At/Above Benchmark threshold.
If the student has a current goal, you will also see the goal (the star) and the goal line. Below the chart, you will see a table listing each of the assessments with the date, scores, and teacher notes. Select View for an assessment to see details, including the items the student answered incorrectly.
Monitoring Progress Toward a Goal
If you have set a goal for the student, on the CBM Assessments tab of the Star Record Book, select Track Goal in the Goal column.
On the Student Details page, you will see a chart of the student's tests on the measure as well as the goal (the star), the goal line for the necessary score trajectory to meet the goal, and a black trend line (if the student has taken three or more tests).
You will also see a table of the student's tests on that measure (as well as tables for other measures). To see detailed information about an assessment, including the items the student answered incorrectly, select View Details in the row for the assessment.
Viewing Assessment Results from Past School Years
To see all of a student's Star CBM assessments, including those from previous school years, on the CBM Assessments tab of the Star Record Book, select a student's name.
On the Student Details page, the "All Assessments" or "Other Assessments" table will list all previous assessments, including those from previous school years. To see detailed information about an assessment, including the items the student answered incorrectly, select View Details in the row for the assessment.
Comparing Student Data Across Screening Windows
The Star CBM Data Insights page allows you to compare student data across screening windows so that you can see whether your students are improving over time. You can select screening windows from the current school year and the previous school year. The Proficiency Rate tile for Reading and Math shows you whether the rate is up or down since the last screening window, and when you explore the data, you can compare the percentage and number of students who scored in each benchmark category in two screening windows.
