  • Benchmark Workshop - Literacy
  • Write from the Beginning Writing Rubrics in conjunction with Benchmark Writing Rubrics - Writing
  • iReady - Literacy and Math
  • EnVisions Math Assessments - Math
  • Teacher-Developed Assessments - Science and Social Studies

Every student is assessed throughout the year to continually monitor progress and adjust instruction to meet each student's specific needs.
