Benchmark Assessor Live is an efficient, valid, and reliable way for teachers to measure a student's reading fluency skills.
Teachers assess students with Benchmark Assessor Live in the fall to screen them for reading problems and identify those who need further diagnosis and who may benefit from a reading intervention like Read Naturally Live. Teachers assess students again in the winter and spring to track their overall reading achievement.
Each student reads three leveled, field-tested print passages while the teacher follows along on the computer, clicking missed words and the last word read. The software automatically calculates the student’s words-correct-per-minute (wcpm) score on each passage and averages the scores.
An individual report for each student provides the student's average words-correct-per-minute (wcpm) score and general recommendations based on the student’s results. Reports generated after the winter and spring assessments also provide average weekly improvement scores to help teachers evaluate student progress. In addition, Benchmark Assessor Live provides a group report that shows which students most need additional reading support.
Benchmark Assessor Live subscriptions include access to all eight levels (1–8) of assessment passages. Each level has three rigorously field-tested, valid and reliable passages representative of general curriculum.
Benchmark Assessor Live is sold by subscription, and educators can reassign licenses without losing data if students leave the program.
The program includes assessment passages, assessment software, and reports of student performance and progress.
