After your students have completed the Galileo Benchmark Test, Teachers can review the test results for students assigned to them. If you're unsure a student has completed the test, check the student's testing status in the Galileo Test Monitoring Report. Before reviewing the results, watch this short video detailing the Galileo Benchmark Performance Levels Report.

Details of the Benchmark Performance Levels test results:
Term/Field Description Performance Levels (Percent Passing) Displays the percentage of students who meet the expected performance level. Graphical chart
Pie chart that shows a color-coded performance summary of the class assessment results. Hover over a section in the graph to view the number and percent of students at each level and the range of Developmental Level (DL scores) for each level.
Proficiency standards legend
The legend below the graph shows color-coded performance levels that correspond with student percentiles and illustrates the corresponding Development Level (DL) range for each Performance Level.
Enrich, Support, Monitor, and Intervene are the default Performance Levels for districts and schools using Galileo to identify students for intervention. If your district or school is also using Galileo for state test forecasting, you will see labels that match the Performance Levels for your state test.
Summary of test results for the class Student Count The number of students in the class who took the Benchmark Test. Avg % Correct The average percentage of correct points out of the total possible points of the scores from all students in the class who took the test. Avg DL The average Developmental Level (DL) score from the scores of all the students in the class who took the test?. Avg % Standards Mastered The average percentage of mastered standards based on the assessment of all students in the class who took the test.
- Click the View Full Benchmark Performance Levels Report link, to access a more detailed view of the data at the Student or Class level, and to choose multiple Benchmark Tests for comparing the progression from one test to another.

Filter more or less classes and tests for comparative test results data. Available filters depend on the level you selected.
- Student level - The available filters are based on whether you want to filter by Class or Intervention Group. If you filter by Class, you can choose one or more Classes and Tests to compare, or choose a single class and test to review. If you filter by Intervention Group, you can choose only one Library, one Intervention Group, and one or more tests to compare or choose a single test to review.
- Class level - Choose one or more Classes and Tests to compare, or choose a single class and test to view.
Test results data display in a Chart view with or without view for any level selected. The chart tab is 1 of 3 available to select, based on whether you're viewing the student or class view.
- Chart - The Chart tab is available when viewing either level. It displays additional information for combined test performance levels achieved by all of your students.
- Data - The Data tab displays when viewing the Student or Class level. It shows all test properties and performance measures for each student who took the test. The data tab also shows aggregate Performance measures that include the raw score, the Developmental Level scale score, and the Performance Level, at the class, school, and district levels.
- Standards - The Standards tab is only available when viewing the Student level. It shows data for the assessed standards mastered on the selected tests, the criteria students mastered in each category, and aggregate standards mastery data for the class, school, and district.
- Click the tab you want to view. The Chart tab is selected by default.
The Data view provides the properties of each selected Galileo Benchmark Test, performance measures for each student who took the test, and aggregate performance measures for all students in the class, school, and district.
Columns in the Data view:

DL Score The Developmental Level (DL) score the student achieved. Performance Level The student's Performance Level for the specific test. Test results averages for the class, school, and district Class row(s) The combined averages for students across the whole class. School row(s) The combined average scores across all classes for a selected Galileo Benchmark Test. District row(s) The combined average scores from all schools across your organization for a selected Galileo Benchmark Test.
The Standards view provides color-coded standards mastery categories for each standard assessed. Standards mastery is determined by the percentage of test questions a student gets correct on a given assessment. The Standards view also allows you to identify students who need intervention on a specific standard. The Intervention Alert report shows the same legend and percentages defined by your district that the Standards view displays.
Standards mastery is determined by the percentage of test questions students answer correctly on the Benchmark Test. If you compare multiple Benchmark Tests, you can view the difference between the tests for each student to determine an increase or decrease in their mastery of each standard.
Columns in the Standards view section:
Term/Field Description Standards Mastery Categories Legend and percentage defined by your district, that also displays in the Intervention Alert report. Column Headings Name Name of the student who has taken a Galileo Benchmark Test. Test The Galileo Benchmark Test the student completed. School The student's school. Class The student's class. % Of Standards Mastered The percentage of standards the student mastered on each test. [standards] The remaining columns in the report are the individual standards and mastery categories students achieved for each standard. Mastery categories are color-coded to help you quickly analyze them. The same information also appears in the Intervention Alert, Development Profile, and Individual Development Profile reports. [first data row(s)]
The first row shows the Galileo Benchmark Test that you selected. The remaining standards columns for that row indicate the assessment Item Count for each standard. Item Count is the number of items in the assessment that measure the standard.
A pop-up displays the assessment item(s) and all associated metadata.
[middle data rows] The middle rows show students and their mastery data. Test results averages for the class, school, and district [Class row(s)] Displays the mastery class average of each assessed standard, to help identify the standards you may need to revisit as a class. [District row(s)] Displays the district's average of mastery for every assessed standard, to show how all students across your district are performing on the standards.

Here are some quick solutions to problems you might encounter when administering the Reading Level Assessment.
If students have taken the test, but you're not seeing a Benchmark Test report, contact your District Administrator to request the test analysis.
If connectivity is lost during the test, reconnect your device which may include restarting your student's computer. The test will continue where it left off before the internet connection was lost.
If a student's score is missing and you know the student has taken at least one of the compared tests, check the option to show only those students who took ALL of the tests chosen for comparison is enabled. If Only students who took ALL tests in the Filter area are selected, uncheck it, to view scores for every student who took at least one of the selected tests to compare.
