Access Recommended Placement (Admin)

Recommended Placement is a time-saving digital solution for teachers that offers a data-driven starting point (Level and Unit) in the Phonics Intervention instructional sequence for each student.

Placement recommendations are based on each student’s performance on the Quick Phonics Assessment (QPA) and/or Quick Spelling Assessment (QSA) following the criteria outlined in the Assessment & Screener Handbook. These measures are administered using Benchmark’s Foundational Skills Assessments.

District and school administrators can view student details in Recommended Placement but cannot modify them. To learn more about Recommended Placement, see the following pages.
