Q: When creating a class list do we need to check the box that says “Use this class for Interim Benchmarks”?
A: Depending on what you want to use the “class” for….
Yes, if this is the collection of ALL of the students that have a seat with you during instruction that you will be using to generate codes for or initiate the Benchmark assessment for.
No, if this is a class that is made up of a group of students that you have collected for enrichment or extension activities and you want to be able to push content, or probes to them as a group.
Q: Do we need to create two different class lists, one that has the reading assessment assigned as the benchmark and then another that has the math assessment assigned as the benchmark?
A: Again, assuming that this is a collection of ALL of the students that have a seat with you during instruction, you will need to have a class for reading/ELA and math if you are responsible for testing them in both subjects.
