Grade Results offers benchmark assessments, used to track grade level mastery and growth throughout the year and to assess end-of-year outcomes. Benchmark assessments provide information to gauge students’ strengths and needs against end-of-year standards in core subject areas. Benchmark testing helps determine whether a school is on-track to meet end-of-year goals. Benchmark testing allows for early interventions to be set in place to address the deficiencies of students before the actual state testing occurs.
