Product Update: New Benchmark Assessments
ThinkCERCA has released new Benchmark Assessments to be used flexibly throughout the year.
ThinkCERCA’s Benchmark Assessments reflect the assessments students take in other contexts by removing additional scaffolding and audio supports to get a true measure of independent student performance. Try these new assessments with your students to measure growth throughout the year!
Start your year with Baseline Writing Assessments to gain insight into student writing abilities to plan personalized growth. Assign these assessments at students’ enrolled grades to measure student performance against grade-level standards. When you automatically assign the writing assessment, your students will also get the What Is CERCA? Direct Instruction lesson to introduce them to the CERCA Framework.
If you need additional data about students’ reading levels, you can automatically assign three Leveling Assessments: below, at, and above grade level. These assessments will help you confirm reading levels to ready students for success.
Throughout the year, if you would like additional assessment opportunities to monitor student growth, you can assign the Mid-Year Assessments.
At the end of the year, assign the End-of-Year Reading and Writing Assessment to capture evidence of writing achievement and compare to baseline to measure student growth.
