The first time students log in to Imagine Math Beginning-of-Year Benchmark Assessment, they will:

- Work through an intro lesson.
- Work through the first lesson in their pathway.
- Work through the Benchmark Assessment.

The Beginning of Year Benchmark is divided into 3 subtests. Between subtests, students have an opportunity to visit the map before jumping back into the next subtest.

There are 145 questions available on the test in total, covering all four grades: PK, K, 1st, and 2nd. Each student receives a portion of the questions available.

This test is adaptive. Students begin at different points, depending upon assigned items, which may be pulled from previous or subsequent grades, based on their performance for their grade level items.
