Renaissance Learning has partnered with School Data Solutions to create a fully automated student score upload system for STAR Reading, Math, and Spanish Assessments in Homeroom.
- Reading, Math, and Spanish score files are being delivered by Renaissance Learning to a secure data repository nightly for participating districts.
- School Data Solutions has developed a process for accessing the files and uploading new scores into Homeroom on a nightly basis.
- Reading, Math, Spanish, and Early Literacy are included.
- All STAR student scores will be brought into Homeroom; Scale Score, Percentile Rank, Normal Curve Equivalent, Grade Equivalent, and for Reading, the Lexile score, if applicable.
- STAR SGPs (Student Growth Percentiles) can also be incorporated into Homeroom for districts that want the SGP data displayed.
- Homeroom can be configured to display any or all of the STAR data types on a district-by-district basis.
- Both Benchmark and Progress Monitoring data can be displayed:
- In addition, a key score for Fall, Winter, and Spring will be displayed as Benchmark data.
- Each student's score is brought into Homeroom and can be displayed as Progress Monitoring data across the entire school year.
- Interested districts need to request that Renaissance Learning export the data to SDS on a nightly basis, and please specify to Customer Support if you would like Star Spanish included.
- Please note: Star Spanish currently displays a score with no cut performance levels.
- See the attached file with steps to contact Renaissance to send files to SDS.
- Please note: This process only needs to be done once. As of July 15, 2016, you must log in and enable the data-sharing feature to continue sharing data. After that, you will need to review and save your data-sharing selections. After that, the data-sharing feature will remain enabled, and you will not have to enable it again next year. It is still considered good practice for you to review your data-sharing selections on a yearly basis, but these will no longer be required from year to year.
Scores may be found here:
