Issue:

Which Star reports are designed to only be used during the current school year?

Resolution:

Several Star reports are designed to be used during the current school year, to help ensure you are providing an environment in which all students are learning and progressing towards mastery of grade-level standards. When the new school year starts, either the reports can no longer be generated for the previous school year (even when selecting to work in a different school year) or the reports may generate but not display data.

Note if the previous year has ended and the new year has not started, all reports will show data with the exception of the Instructional Planning Student and Screening reports. A message explains This report cannot be generated outside the current school year. These reports will be accessible again on the first day of the new school year.

If the previous year has ended and the new year has already started, and you are choosing to work in the previous year, the following reports will not display data.

Application Reports

Growth Proficiency This report cannot be generated. A message explains Work in the current school year to use this chart.

Instructional Planning Class This report will list the students in last years classes but will not show their test scores, even when setting the Testing End Date to a date within that year, except for students that have been held back so their assigned grade is the same as it was when they tested last year.

Instructional Planning Student This report cannot be generated. A message explains This report cannot be generated outside the current school year.

Reading Range This Star Reading report will generate and display the ZPD for the most recent test, regardless of the school year you are working in. To use ZPD scores for tests taken in other years, customize the Star Reading Test Record report to include those dates.

Screening This report cannot be generated. A message explains This report cannot be generated outside the current school year.

State Standards Class The report will generate but students will be listed under Students Not Tested in the Reporting Period, unless they have been held back so their assigned grade is the same as it was when they tested last year.

State Standards District Students will only be included in the Current/Projected counts if they have been held back, so their assigned grade is the same as it was when they tested last year

State Standards Student The report will generate and the selected students will be shown but test data will not be displayed unless they have been held back a grade, so their assigned grade is the same as it was when they tested last year.

Student Progress Monitoring The report will generate but test data will not be displayed unless the selected students have been held back a grade, so their assigned grade is the same as it was when they tested last year.

Note: The Student Growth Percentile (SGP) on the Growth report will always be a student's current SGP, regardless of which tests are shown. This is true even when including a previous year's tests on the report.

Consolidated Reports

Regardless of which school year you choose to work in, consolidated reports are based on current student enrollment. During the school year, current enrollment means the students are enrolled in classes that span today's date. If the school year has ended and the new year has not started, consolidated reports will include data for students enrolled in classes that are tied to the school year, as well as classes that are tied to a marking period that ended on the last day of the school year. For an accurate overview of student data for the school year, you should generate consolidated reports before the new school year begins (or before the classes are no longer current, if classes are tied to marking periods) and before you unenroll students from schools they are no longer attending. You may choose to print the reports or save the PDF files. When the new school year starts, enrollment information for the previous year is no longer used.

Other Software Features

The Star Enterprise Record Book is only accessible if todays date falls within the school year. If the school year has ended or you have chosen to work in a different year, the link will be grayed out. It will be accessible again on the first day of the new school year and will display students in their new classes.
