Caution

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.
