Student Experience in the Imagine Galileo K-Grade 1 SLA Benchmark Test

As Kindergarten and Grade 1 students take the Imagine Galileo SLA Benchmark Test, they will see different screens and hear different instructions as they complete the test. Recognizing these screens and instructions helps Teachers monitor when students start the K-Grade 1 Imagine Galileo SLA Benchmark Test, navigate the test, answer different test question types, and receive feedback about their progress and performance on the test. Prior to taking the test, Administrators must schedule the K-Grade 1 Imagine Galileo SLA Benchmark Test.

The Imagine Galileo SLA Benchmark Test may require more time to complete than other tests. Sometimes students can become impatient and guess the answers to test items instead of reading passages or test items fully. Encourage your students to take their time and do their best work.

Students typically complete the test in 30-45 minutes; allow them as long as they need to complete the test. The Benchmark Test can be administered over multiple sessions if needed. If a student logs out of the Benchmark Test, their answers will be saved and they can resume the test the next time they log in. While students are taking the Benchmark Test, you can check your student's status using the Imagine Galileo Test Monitoring Report.
