Additional Client Requirements & Recommendations

  • If using a firewall, proxy, and/or content filter, some changes may need to be made for Renaissance applications to function properly.
    • Allow access to Renaissance resources to be sure the software functions as designed. Add an exception within your firewall, proxy, or content filtering software to allow inbound and outbound HTTP and HTTPS communication with the * domain as well as access to and from * and *
    • Allow inbound and outbound HTTP and HTTPS communication access to (hosted by Google) and (hosted by Microsoft). Certain Renaissance features access JavaScript libraries from these content delivery networks; you must allow access to the sites so the software functions as designed.
    • Users may experience errors in the software if the proxy server caches Renaissance web pages. You may want to configure your network so that users bypass the proxy server entirely when accessing Renaissance.
    • Star Early Literacy and Star Math with Audio support require students to download MP3 files from Renaissance. Star Early Literacy also accesses MP4 files. If you use content filtering be sure to allow this type of activity.
  • Browser cookies must be enabled in order to log in to Renaissance as a student or personnel user. Refer to our Privacy Policy for complete details.
  • ActiveX controls and plug-ins need to be enabled if using Internet Explorer on Microsoft Windows operating systems.

The AccelScan Scanning Software is required if scoring Accelerated Math or Accelerated Math 2.0 paper assignments using a scanner. All client applications/plugins should be installed as a local administrator to the workstation. Access this knowledge base article to view a chart showing the client applications/plugins and where they are used in the software.
