The Basics Of Viewing Benchmark Reports

A special welcome to the new educators, schools, and districts partnering with Discovery Education Assessment. Whether you are a new teacher in a district using our Benchmark exams, a school that has joined district efforts in interim assessment for the first time, or a district in a state that has recently promoted the use of standardized formative assessment, we hope that you are able to start next school year feeling comfortable with the new tools available to you. To that end, we are excited to support you in your goals of acquiring useful and actionable data about your students through the benchmarking of student progress using interim assessments, and would like to provide you, in this post, with a few webinar recordings that detail instructions for using our Benchmark reports.
