Manage Assessment Data Downloads

Benchmark eAssessment Reports allows school and district administrators to download their assessment data for a school, multiple schools, or the entire district in a convenient CSV file stored in Downloads page where they can manage and retrieve their downloads.

Download Assessment Data

To begin downloading the assessment data:

1) Click on the Downloads icon from any report.

2) Select standards or test scores assessment data (or both) for the current grade or all grades. Selecting the "Student Username" field includes the usernames of the selected students into your assessment data.

The download file can include the following report types based on your selections in the CSV Download modal:

  • Standards Performance: The file contains assessment data by student and test by each question including points earned, total points, and standards aligned to each question. The questions are in sequential order. If the test is aligned to other standards or taxonomies, then column R will appear with the name of the taxonomy. Field Name, Student Username, is an optional field for the school and district level csv files that can be selected at the time of requesting the download.
  • Test Scores: The file contains assessment data by student and test including points earned, total points, and the overall test score (%) for the test.  Field Name, Student Username, is an optional field for the school and district level csv files that can be selected at the time of requesting the download.
  • Standards Performance and Test Scores: Both the standards performance and test scores data can be downloaded together in one file. The TestScore % field is added after the Total Points and before the Standards field. Field Name, Student Username, is an optional field for the school and district level csv files that can be selected at the time of requesting the download.
  • Test Status: The file contains assessment status data (e.g. Not Started, In Progress, Needs to Be Graded, and Complete) by test and student.
