Interim & Benchmark Assessments

Students in grades 3-8 are administered English language math & literacy interim assessments two times each year. The interim assessments are district-developed, standards-based assessments that are aligned with the state standards. Interim assessments provide information about students' understanding in relation to standards and this information will be used to target individual students who are in need of additional math and/or literacy support.

At Longfellow, students in grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 are also administered a Spanish literacy interim assessment.

Science benchmark exams are administered to students in grades 3-4-5.

Students in grades 6-7-8 are also administered end-of-year course exams in math and literacy.
