Readiness (Benchmark) Assessments
For the 2022-2023 school year, the Curriculum, Assessment, Instruction and Student Support teams have collaborated to offer a collection of readiness or benchmark assessments that can be added to your school's assessment plan for reading, writing, and math. You will note that for reading, assessments have been aligned with Scarborough's Reading Rope for schools who are utilizing a structured literacy framework. Assesments that are suited to universal or classroom screening are highlighted in green, while those that are more in-depth and likely used for only a few students are highlighted in yellow. The document provides a list with links to resources that may be used to measure growth, but is certainly not an exhaustive list. As we explore various assessment options, this list will continue to evolve. These readiness assessments can be used to support your work with Personalized Goals (PGs) in your school.
Effective PG Writing, Rubrics & Exemplars
Characteristics of an Effective Personalized Goal (Based on the REORDER Opportunties Level 3 Rubric)
- Benchmark assessments have been thoughtfully selected and administered in collaboration with other staff teaching in your grade grouping to ensure consistency.
- Students demonstrate skills and knowledge in reading at or above grade level or have a personalized goal that is informed by data.
- All students that are below grade level on benchmark or divisional assessments (E.g., DRA, Gr. 7 Reading Assessment) have a PG.
- Teacher has written the goal based on data and in consultation with the student (when possible).
- Goals are monitored regularly and updated regularly (approximately every 6-8 weeks or earlier).
- Goals are clear and specific, identify the root cause of the issue, include specific strategies, and are attainable within one term.
- Parents understand and support achievement of the personalized goal(s)

Exemplars for each level of PG based on the rubric above are attached below.
