Administering a Timed Benchmark Test
Scoring timed benchmark measures is similar to the progress monitoring testing.
Manual Administration/Data Entry
If you administer the benchmark assessments in hard copy/paper and pencil format, then you can download the student copies of the tests to administer to students and then score them with the answer keys. These tests are located by going to your Measures tab and then clicking on the Benchmark tab. You will click on the season icon (in this case Winter) that says "Enter Winter Scores" underneath it.
Entering a Total Score:
After clicking on this icon you will be directed to a page where you can enter student responses and scores. Choose
the student's grade and then look to the left-hand side of where you enter data, and choose to either enter the
total score or item level data. After you have completed entering the scores/responses, please scroll down to the
bottom of the page and make sure to click on the "Save Scores" button to record the information.
Entering Item Level Data:
If you opt to score a benchmark timed test in real time, and with a scoresheet and stopwatch, select the item level data option.
A score sheet with student names appears along with a stop watch. The student can use their printed hard copy to recite what is on their test and the student responses can be timed and scored here. Make sure to press the Save button after each entry.
