How to Ensure That Assessments Are Taken Only at School
If Lexile assessments are included in your license, as a teacher, you may want to ensure that assessments are taken only at school – preventing the students from receiving help from outside of class.
Initial Lexile tests cannot be administered the same way that benchmark tests are. In this instance, it is best to educate parents/guardians as to the importance of the initial Lexile test and the integrity of the test and its importance in establishing a more accurate benchmark score for students.
For benchmark exams, you can have more control over the time window in which the test can be taken. The District Administrator can set the time of day for all students in the district so they can only take benchmark exams while at school.
Building Administrators and teachers should check with their District Administrator to find out what the testing window is for their district.
