  • Common Core Benchmark Assessments: SBAC, PARCC, CAASPP/CA, GMAS/GA, North Carolina EOY, Ohio State Tests, New York State Tests
  • Virginia Benchmark Assessments: Virginia SOL Tests
  • Florida Benchmark Assessments: FSA Tests
  • NWEA Benchmark Assessments: MAP Growth tests for Common Core, Indiana, Texas, Virginia, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Carolina, Louisiana, Tennessee, Missouri, New Jersey and Florida

These new benchmark assessments offer the following benefits:

  • Preparing students with a mock test and practice items similar to those given in the real assessments.
  • Immediate insights at the student, standard, and question level allowing teachers to easily adjust their instruction to ensure no standard is left unaddressed.
  • Measure longitudinal growth overall, growth by standard, and growth by student

These new benchmark assessments are now available to all users with an active license and don’t require any additional license or setup. To learn more, please read the blog post: New from ScootPad: Pre-Built Benchmark Assessments.
