19 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
Data entered and updated in STARSCLIENT and STARSAMIN is reflected immediately in STARSCLASSROOM Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM

20 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
As teachers begin to use STARSCLASSROOM errors in programing data will be found and must be fixed to allow for accurate grade reporting and Advance data pulls. PROBLEM: A teacher logs into STARSCLASSROOM and does not have any classes?

21 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
PROBLEM: A teacher logs into STARSCLASSROOM and does not have any classes? SOLUTION: Only teachers that appear on the master schedule, have students scheduled, and that are correctly linked on Teacher Reference can access STARSCLASSROOM. Middle Schools and High Schools (CFNs help Elementary Schools) confirm: The teacher appears on the master schedule for the desired number of course. Students are scheduled for those courses/sections (classes are not empty). Name entered on the master schedule is correctly matched on Teacher Reference. Click the icon to display teacher details on Teacher Reference. A correct EIS/Employee ID number and address must be listed for a correct match.

22 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
PROBLEM: A teacher logs into STARSCLASSROOM and does not have any classes? SOLUTION: Only teachers that appear on the master schedule, have students scheduled, and that are correctly linked on Teacher Reference. Middle Schools and High Schools (CFNs help Elementary Schools) confirm: School has at least 1 marking period for the current school year/term. Schools with no marking periods can not enter marks and not show courses in STARSCLASSROOM.

23 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
PROBLEM: A teacher reports that s/he sees the wrong courses when logging into STARSCLASSROOM? SOLUTION: Teachers will see all of the courses and students they are linked to in STARS (master schedule, student programs, teacher reference) in STARSCLASSROOM. If a teacher is missing courses check the master schedule for the course and teacher. If a teacher is missing courses: Check the master schedule. Is the missing course listed? Is the teacher listed for all the correct courses? Check Teacher Reference. Remember, if a teachers name is entered two different ways on the master schedule it will appear twice on Teacher Reference. This is okay as long as both records are linked correctly on Teacher Reference.

24 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
PROBLEM: A teacher reports that s/he sees the wrong courses when logging into STARSCLASSROOM? SOLUTION: Teachers will see all of the courses and students they are linked to in STARS (master schedule, student programs, teacher reference) in STARSCLASSROOM. If a teacher is missing courses check the master schedule for the course and teacher. If a teacher has extra courses: Check the master schedule. The teacher will be listed next to the course in question. Who is teaching this class? Update the teacher name to update STARSCLASSROOM. Complete Teacher Reference for the new teacher name if needed.

25 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
PROBLEM: A teacher reports that s/he sees the wrong students when logging into STARSCLASSROOM? SOLUTION: Teachers will see all of the courses and students they are linked to in STARS (master schedule, student programs, teacher reference) in STARSCLASSROOM. If a teacher is missing students or has students not currently in his/her class student programs must be updated. If a teacher is missing students: School can use Schedule Add/Drop (or other functions) to schedule new admits and students who had recent program changes. If a teacher has students not in his/her class: Most likely due to a interclass transfer, the school can use the Schedule Add/Drop (or other functions) to update the schedules of students who have had recent program changes.

26 Troubleshooting STARSCLASSROOM
PROBLEM: STARSCLASSROOM defaults to Marking Period 2 when a teacher logs in but the school is currently collecting marks for Marking Period 1. SOLUTION: STARSCLASSROOM will default to the Marking Period the school is currently in as identified on the Manage Terms and Marking Periods screen on the Client. If this is not desired, changing the marking period dates to put the school back in Marking Period 1 will make Marking Period 1 the default in STARSCLASSROOM.
