About Benchmark Assessments
Benchmark assessments are administered on-grade level only. The system will not allow for off-grade level testing. For a student performing below their grade level, administer the progress monitoring measures instead.
Taking a Benchmark Assessment
The district easyCBM administrator will set the benchmark window, typically 2-3 weeks in length. Under “Measures” and the Benchmarks tab, if a black arrow is pointing down on the fall, winter, or spring colored icon, then the benchmark window is open.
When the benchmark window is open, have students login and choose their test from a drop down menu and take a test (which is scored and entered automatically).
Proficient Reading or Basic Reading, Vocabulary, and Mathematics are to be taken online. Fluency measures are administered one-on-one. To enter paper results or directly into the platform click the colored benchmark icon. Entering a total score will appear, to include “item level data”, then use that link on the left.
