Screening Report

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network Administrators, School Network Staff, School Administrators, School Staff, Teachers

The Screening Report is used to identify students who are having difficulty reaching benchmarks. Once those students have been identified, you can begin to organise your intervention plan. (The Screening Report shows this data for multiple students. The Student Progress Monitoring Report shows this data for a single student.) Students who are not reaching a specific benchmark can be further divided into groups to help you focus your resources on the students who need the most help.

Although Year 1 students can take the STAR Reading test, the Screening Report cannot be created for them.

The report will indicate if any students took a test using extended time limits, with a footnote explanation.

Teachers who have had the Manage Screening, Progress Monitoring & Intervention capability removed can only run this report for their own students.

If no students have taken a test within the Current Screening Dates, you cannot create a Screening Report.

Depending on the setting of the Lexile® Measures preference, you may see the Lexile® measure and the Lexile® ZPD on the report as well.

    Use the drop-down list to choose all the students in a specific year, or click Students, Classes or Groups to choose specific students, classes, or groups.

    "Groups" refers to groups of students that have been created specifically for reporting purposes.

    • When selecting specific students, you will see a checklist of all students enrolled in STAR Reading classes. Tick each student you want on the report or tick the Student box at the top of the column to select all of them.

    Reporting Parameter Group

    The Screening Report shows data from a specific time period; choose a reporting period from the drop-down list.

    Use this option to choose which benchmark you want to show on this report: the school's or the school network's. Not all benchmarks may be available; a default benchmark (such as the school or school network) should be set in those cases.

    Use this option to show the categories the students are in on the report. You can choose to show all of the categories, none of them, or only specific ones.

    If you choose anything other than a specific year level for the Select Students option, then "Student details will be included for all categories" will be shown in place of the Show Student Details options.

    Choose how to group the information on the report: by year, class or teacher.

    Note: This report uses both the Group By and Sort By options; on the report, the Group By option is applied first.

    Choose how to sort information on the report: by students' last names or by their Normed Referenced Scaled Score (NRSS) (in descending order).

    Note: This report uses both the Group By and Sort By options; on the report, the Group By option is applied first.
