Literacy Assessment Information
The T/E School District is committed to supporting each student in their literacy journey and uses standards and benchmarks to measure student growth and success in reading proficiency. Teachers also informally assess and work with students to build individual skills, confidence and a love for reading.
Benchmark assessments are administered three times a year (fall, winter, spring) to provide an update on student performance in certain skill areas necessary to becoming a successful reader. Below is a summary of the skills tested.
The District's Language Arts Overview includes information on standardized and District-wide assessments used to inform our instruction and provide for students' curricular needs in the areas of Language Arts and Reading.
Parents/guardians are able to access their child’s benchmark data via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Once logged in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal, click the Benchmark tab on the left side of the page
