If the Placement Test is taken in the Beginning Benchmark Test window or in November, results will be reported in the Beginning Benchmark Test window.
If the Placement Test is taken in the Middle Benchmark Test window or is taken between March 1 and March 25, results will be reported in the Middle Benchmark Test window.
If taken after March 25, the Placement test scores will not be shown as a Benchmark Test.
Benchmark Tests must be completed within 28 days of a student beginning the test. If more than 28 days pass, the student's test will be marked as "Expired" and they will be moved directly into their content without an opportunity to retake the test.
As long as a student begins the Benchmark Test within the test window, 28 days are allowed for completion, even if the end of the 28 days goes beyond the test window.
This is to ensure that results accurately show a student’s ability at a single point in time
First Language Support
If a student has a different language set as their first language, the instructions for the benchmark with be given in their first language, but the benchmark content will still be solely in English.
