do I delete a Star test from a student's record?
Renaissance hosts your Renaissance website, an update was
applied the evening of July 31, 2014, to allow district and school
administrators to deactivate Star tests.
your Renaissance web-based software is installed on a server within your school or district,
there is no way to remove a Star test from a student's record. However, you can
re-test a student and use the results from the later test when the reports are
you specify the Reporting Period on the Report Options page, your report will
only include the results for tests taken during this time period. If you
include more than one test session in your report period, most reports will
display results for the most recent test. The Growth report will compare
results for the first and last tests taken during the date range specified.
(The Reading Range report in Star Reading will always display the ZPD for the
most recent test taken.)
a student has tested twice in a single day, reports that include that date will
always reflect the later test. If you do not want your reports to include tests
taken on a particular day, re-test your student on a different day, and
customize your reports.
Student B accidentally takes a test as Student A, you may have Student A
re-test on the same day. All reports including that test session will reflect
the later test.
Student C takes a test, then Student D accidentally tests as Student C later
that same day, you should exclude that day of testing from your reports for
Student C and have the student test again the next day. Then customize your
report to include the subsequent test.
Note: If students
frequently test under the wrong name, review your password requirements. You
may want to set the Testing Password Preference to require both the student and
monitor passwords for added security.
