What is meant by Benchmark Testing and Risk Rating Reports?

Risk Rating Reports (for Benchmark tests) are found on the Deluxe Edition and includes fall, winter, and spring Benchmark screening tests. These tests are alternate forms of the measures used for progress monitoring (PM forms are available on both the Lite and Deluxe Edition) and are designed to be administered as screening assessments to identify students at risk in the areas of reading or math.

These reports are found by logging into your account and clicking on the Reports tab, then the Benchmark tab, followed by the Risk Analysis tab.

The Risk Rating Reports are provided after each Benchmark administration. They provide a listing of students and their BM scores, color-coded to show “Low Risk”, “Some Risk” and “High Risk” based on the patterns of student performance on the Benchmark Assessments. These reports are easily sortable by sub-test (Fluency, for example, or Vocabulary or Comprehension), to assist in the identification of the specific sub-skills with which a student may need more help.
