FAQ Friday: How Do You Know at Which Level to Start the Benchmark Assessment?

Q: How do you know at which level to start the Benchmark Assessment?

FAQ Friday_Updated_8-3-18A: We provide several time-saving options. If you have no information on a child's previous reading performance, the Where-to-Start Word Test provides a rough starting level for assessment and will cut down the number of books he needs to read before you can identify an independent and an instructional level. If you do have information about a child's previous reading performance and/or know something about the texts he is reading, the Assessment Guides provide correlation charts to help you determine the best starting point.
