We are pleased to announce the new Pre-Built Benchmark Assessments available now ahead of the new school year! These out-of-the-box interim assessments and end of the year simulations will be fully aligned to the blueprints of the respective assessments. This new improvement represents #3 of the 10 improvements that will be ready before you head back!
Below we’ve outlined the details of the Pre-Built Benchmark Assessments and what you can expect:
1. Which benchmark assessments are available?
In this release we have assessment simulation coverage for the following 11 states: Nebraska, Arkansas, Ohio, Nevada, California, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, New York and Virginia. These include: CAASPP/CA, GMAS/GA, EOG/NC, AIR/OH, FSA/FL and VSOL/VA. Teachers and Administrators can simply assign one of these pre-built simulation assessments to their students and review the results immediately while preparing students with a mock test and practice items similar to those given in the real assessments.
2. What data is available at the assessment level?
For each assessment, you have insights at the student, standard, and question level allowing you to easily adjust your instruction to ensure no standard is left unaddressed. Spot trends and project questions onto a SmartBoard for classroom review!
3. Can we use the benchmarks to show growth?
Yes! Simply assign any of the assessments as a pre-test and then again as the post-test. Then run our Assessment Growth Report to review overall growth, growth by standard, and growth by student.
