The overall goal of the Benchmark Assessment is to determine student readiness to learn grade-level content. For students not yet prepared, the benchmark test will determine remediation lessons to be added into students' pathways to help close gaps within grade-level learning. This assessment will provide educators with valuable information about their students' Performance Levels & other data from the Quantile Framework. Students will be placed into their state-standard-specific grade-level pathway and may be assigned precursor lessons based on their results – always building them back towards competency on grade-level material.
Educators do have the ability to view individual benchmark test items if the item number is known, by using the Answer Key.
Please note, benchmark data will only be visible once the student has completed the Benchmark Test and has started at least one lesson.
