The ability to open and close benchmark windows is determined by a setting in your Deluxe Teacher account. To access this feature, first login to your account and go to the “Admin” tab. Next locate the “Account Management” section and click on System settings.
Now, scroll down to the Benchmark Window Settings. To adjust this setting, select the opening and closing dates for the testing window. The benchmark window needs to be current for testing and the remaining benchmark dates need to be staggered with only one testing window open at a time. The dates also need to be moving forward in time. After selecting the dates, please make sure to click on the “Update Benchmark Dates” button in order for the changes to take effect. An example of correct benchmark window for the 2018-2019 academic year is:
Fall Sept. 1 – Sept. 30, 2018
Winter Jan. 1- Jan. 31, 2019
Spring April 1 – April 30, 2019
