This is the starting page for students. Your Home page lists all the software that you can use.
To start, select a product to work in, such as Accelerated Reader or Star Math.
If you are at home, when you select a product, you might see a message saying that you can't use that product right now. This means your school does not allow students to work in those products at home. If you have questions, talk to your teacher.
If you see a message that says the product is not available right now, try again later.
Many of your assignments are in the Assignment list on the right. For those, you can select an assignment to start it. This list includes assignments from AR 360 Instructional Reading, Accelerated Math Instructional Practice, and Star Custom.
You can also select work you finished in this list to see how you did. The list includes Accelerated Reader quizzes that you have finished.
If you are at home, when you click an assignment, you might see a message saying that you can't use that product right now. This means your school does not allow students to work in those products at home. If you have questions, talk to your teacher.
Use the drop-down lists in your Assignments list to change which assignments you can see.
Use the Showing drop-down list to show All Assignments, assignments that you have not started working on yet (Assignments Not Started), assignments you are working on (Working Assignments), or assignments you are done with (Assignments Done).
Use the From drop-down list to choose whether to see assignments from Everyone or from a specific teacher. Assignments that you started (like Accelerated Reader quizzes) will show your name.
If you want to stop using the software, select your name in the bar at the top of the page; then, select Log Out.
Notes for Teachers
- If the student is missing one or more Renaissance products, make sure the student is enrolled in the correct class in the current school year and that the class is set up and has the correct products selected. If the student is missing Star products only, ask your administrator to check the student's grade level; if the student's grade is set to Other, Early Education, Pre-K, or Greater than 12, the student is not eligible to take Star tests, so the student will not see the Star products on their Home page.
- If, after clicking a Freckle or Lalilo tile, your students see a message saying "Your teacher is not ready for you to practice," you (the teacher) need to verify your email address. To do that, log in to Renaissance and select the Freckle or Lalilo tile on your Home page; then, follow the instructions to verify your email address.
Parent/Guardian Email Updates
Parents or guardians can select Get Email Updates under the product tiles to sign up to receive emails when their children take Accelerated Reader quizzes or Star assessments. Note that you must sign up for each of your children separately - ask each child to sign in and select the link to sign up for emails for that child. For more information, see Getting Email Updates on Your Child's Work (Parents).
