The Summative Benchmark assessment is used to track grade-level mastery and growth
throughout the year and to assess outcomes at the end of the year. It is typically
administered at the beginning of the year as a pre-test, during the year as an interim
test and at the end of the year as a post-test.
The Benchmark Assessment addresses grades K-8 (Language Arts and Math) as well as
Geometry I, Algebra I and English I.
The test contains 20-35 items and does bookmark in case it is not completed in one sitting. Questions are not
randomized to allow the teacher to read the assessment aloud as needed. If used as a formal assessment,
proper test administration measures must be taken.
The Summative Benchmark is not assigned by teachers; rather, it is enabled by a district administrator for students to access. After the assessment is enabled for students, they have a maximum of 5 attempts per testing window to complete the assessment. Once the assessment has been completed, Individualized Learning Paths (ILPs) can be generated using the assessment results.
