Enabling or disabling the Benchmark Test and Reading Level Assessment

Changing test enablement settings means that you can enable or disable the Benchmark Test or Reading Level Assessment for all test windows, some test windows, or none of the test windows. District Administrators can change the test enablement settings for one or more schools in their district. School Administrators can only change the enablement settings for their school.  Educators do not have permissions to change test enablement settings.

By default, the Benchmark Test is enabled for all test windows. District or School Administrators can change the enablement settings for the Middle-of-Year and End-of-Year Benchmark Test, but not for the Beginning-of-Year Benchmark Test, which cannot be disabled. By default, the Reading Level Assessment is disabled for all test windows. District or School Administrators can change the enablement settings for the Reading Level Assessment in any test window.

 Note

All new students take the Placement Test to place them in Imagine Language & Literacy. All returning students take the Beginning-of-Year Benchmark Test. You cannot disable these tests.

 Recommendation

Imagine Learning strongly recommends that you keep all Benchmark Tests for all three test windows enabled. Benchmark Test scores help to measure student growth throughout the year.
