What data is reported?
STAR results by specified group, includes average performance levels by group/demographic, % of students at each performance level, and performance level/proficiency gaps by group.
How is the data reported?
As a single page group summary of average performance levels by subgroup on one side and gaps in performance on the other.
Don’t use this report to judge student growth, as STAR tests differ in difficulty from one grade/level to the next. Also, note how “academic year” and “test year range” selections impact the report. For example, if I select students who were in my classroom (academic year) in 2010-2011 and took the STAR (test year range) 2009-2011, scores will include how my students performed following my instruction in 2011. However, if it’s September and I select 2011-2012 as academic year and 2009-2011 as test year, I can see my incoming students’ performance.
