Beginning of the Year (BOY)
BOY Benchmark Assessments should be administered during the first two weeks of school. Students should be placed into microphases based on data from the EL Education Benchmark Assessment (see the conversion chart to place students accordingly). Additional days might be needed to teach routines and rotations for independent group work.
Middle of the Year (MOY)
MOY Benchmark Assessments should be administered after the completion of Module 2.
End of the Year (EOY)
EOY Assessments should be conducted with at least two weeks left in the school year to group students in the final microphase and pass on any information to other teachers and parents to close out the academic year.
