About the Class Overview
The Class Overview is the default page when teachers open Benchmark Digital Oral Reading Records (ORRs). You can access ORRs by clicking on the ORR icon on either the Menu or the Dashboard.
The Class Overview lists your students and displays their recent assignments. The Class Overview page also provides you with some basic statistics from students’ most recently assigned reading record. You can also access an individual student’s profile, which details their performance on their recent reading records and lets you begin a new oral reading record.
