How do students earn Galaxy Stars in Progress Learning?

Updated by Gayle McKee

Motivate students to master their state standards with a Galaxy Star Challenge. Track how many Galaxy Stars students have earned, and celebrate growth and mastery of their learning standards.

Below is a list of how elementary students in grades K-5 earn Galaxy Stars for their on-grade level practice in Progress Learning.

Students will earn Galaxy Stars for:

Students will not earn Galaxy Stars for:

  • On grade-level practice questions completed within the study plan
  • On grade-level assigned practice questions
  • On grade-level assigned remediation
  • Mixed standards practice questions
  • Assessments, diagnostics, or tests
  • Below grade-level work in their Study Plan
  • Above grade-level work in their Study Plan

Students will earn a maximum of 3 Galaxy Stars if they score 100%, 2 Galaxy Stars if they score 80% or higher, or 1 Galaxy Star if they score 70% - 79%. No stars are earned for scores below 70%

Students can only earn a max of 3 stars for any standard. They can continue to practice that standard each day, but once they've earned 3 stars, they will not earn any additional stars in that particular standard.

Use our Galaxy Star Punch Cards and Student Encouragement Cards to motivate your students to keep up with their progress.

Skills mastered in My Galaxies of Liftoff also earn Galaxy Stars. The Galaxy Stars earned in Liftoff are a separate reward system from the on-grade level practice completed in the Progress Learning Study Plan.
