What are benchmark tests?
Certain students are tested every year based on their grade level or classes that they take.
We are required to track those students' learning throughout the year.
Who has to take a test?
All freshmen and sophomores taking Algebra I, Geometry, ELA 9, ELA 10, Biology are required to take tests. (In Galileo)
Juniors and Seniors also will take a benchmark test based on the Accuplacer. (In Edgenuity)
What tests do I take and when?
Near the start of your course, you'll need to take the Pretest.
After you finish part A of your course, you'll take a benchmark test (called CBAS #2).
After you finish part B of your course, you'll take the Posttest.
Take pretest at the start of the year or as soon as you are able.
Take the posttest near the end of the year or before you graduate/leave.
