You can see all Benchmark Writing Assessments results for all students in your class, from thew new "Benchmark Writing Assessment" report available in the Insights menu.
This report will allow you to see the mastery level of each student in the different benchmark writing checkpoints throughout the year. Baseline, mid-year and end-of-year.
You will be able to compare the progress in the different checkpoints and decide how you can best help your students improve.
The results shown consider only the last completed attempts for each student, so if you want to give one of your students a different benchmark assessment writing lesson, you will always have the most up to date as part of this report.
Also, if another teacher in your school assigned the benchmark writing assessments to students in your class, you will be able to see the results without having to ask your students to do the same lesson again.
If you have multiple classes, the first thing you need to do in the report is selecting the correct class from the top menu.
Clicking on each student result will allow you to drill into the assignment details. From there, you will be able to see the lesson that was assigned, the completion dates, the students reading level, the student scores, and you will find a way to access the student work.
You will also be able to see what needs grading so that you can take action on these assignments.
As you can see, in the assignment details section you will find information related to how the score of the lesson is split into the different rubric categories. This represents the score that was given to the student in Claim, Evidence, Reasoning, Conclusion, Audience-Appropriate Language and Conventions of English.
With this information, you will be able to easily interpret the writing skills that the student needs to practice at the beginning of the year with the baseline benchmark, have the students practice their skills by assigning them the correct lessons, and then compare the growth of the different skills at the mid and end-of-year checkpoints.
