About Benchmark eAssessments
What are Benchmark eAssessments?
Benchmark eAssessments is a comprehensive digital solution for test-taking, grading, and reporting that seamlessly integrates with Benchmark Education’s online learning portal, Benchmark Universe.
Benchmark eAssessments offer students an intuitive design that mirrors high stakes testing environments so they can get comfortable taking online tests. Teachers and administrators can access the grading environment to grade open-response questions, leave comments, and view student raw scores and achievement levels.
The reporting suite allows teachers and administrators to track progress and compare standards and test scores performance at the student and class levels to help inform instruction. Administrators have access to school and district level reports to help analysis at the school and district levels. Teachers and administrators can also quickly see the status of all assessments assigned online to keep track of what’s been completed.
Check out this short overview video of Benchmark eAssessments.
- Students see unanswered and bookmarked questions and are prompted to review them before submitting their final answers.
- Students can use tools including a highlighter, line reader, and image magnifier as well as accommodation settings to adjust the font size and screen contrast. The highlighting tool persists once the student submits the test, so teachers can see what was highlighted by the student while they are grading.
- Teachers can enable and disable audio support for assessments from the assignment page.
