Note: The system will pre-select all required reporting options as you customise your report. For example, if you select STAR Reading™ as one source, the only available subject is Reading. When you get to the Select Subjects page, Reading will be preselected for you. You cannot change this pre-selected option, and it counts toward the total number of allowed choices on that page.
