- Click Star Maths on the Home page, then click Screening, Progress Monitoring & Intervention.
- Select a school, if necessary, from the School drop-down list .
- Click View Benchmarks in the grey sidebar on the left side of the page .
If you cannot click View Benchmarks, the school in the School drop-down list does not have any screening dates. Make sure you see the name of the school you want to work with in the School drop-down list.
- In the top section of the View Benchmarks page , click the tab to choose which type of benchmark you want to view: School, School Network or national. (Note that "England KS2 SATs" shown in this example is one possible name for the national benchmarks; the name will differ based on what the national benchmarks are called in your location.)
The current setting for the default benchmark is shown at the top of the page . The Edit Default Benchmark link beneath it will only appear if the user group you belong to is allowed to set the default benchmark.
The default benchmark is the benchmark that is used throughout Star Maths. In some places (such as the Screening Report options), you are allowed to choose different benchmarks to use—if no choice is made in these situations, the default benchmark shown here is the one that will be used.
- The number of cut score categories and the minimum proficiency level for the school network are shown in the Benchmark Structure section of the page . The Edit Benchmark Structure link beneath the table will only appear if the user group you belong to is allowed to edit school network benchmark structure.
- The Cut Scores table will only have one row; a single school network benchmark is applied to all years in all the schools in the school network. The Edit Cut Scores link above the table will only appear if the user group you belong to is allowed to edit school network cut scores.
Verify that the national tab is active.
Unlike school and school network benchmarks, national benchmarks are linked to the Scaled Score (SS), not the Percentile Rank (PR).
There may be years that do not have a linking study between the national benchmarks and Star Maths; the rows for these years are not shown.
The Edit Non-Linked Years link above the table will only appear if the user group you belong to is allowed to edit estimated scores for non-linked years.
- Click Done when you have finished viewing the benchmarks.
