2019-2020 ELAT Benchmark Calendar
We recommend that benchmark periods are contained to a 2-week window whenever possible.
- BOY Benchmark – within the first 30 calendar days of your school year (see note below regarding kindergarten).
- MOY Benchmark – December 2nd-20th OR January 6th – January 24th. CDE is requesting that your dates fall prior to the Winter Break or after the Winter break.
- EOY Benchmark – April 27th – May 15th
- Kindergarten consideration: Through a provision in HB15-1323 you may choose to use up to 60 calendar days for initial benchmarking. However, we would encourage districts to continue with best practice by benchmarking and providing support early in the year, within the first 30 days. Completion of your READ BOY assessment within the 60 calendar days will inform the literacy component of your readiness assessment
News for Amplify Users: DIBELS Next is now called Acadience Reading. Acadience Reading is a trademark of Acadience Learning Inc.
It is important to note that the content of the assessment will remain the same. Additionally, the current materials, training, and software provided by Amplify through the Early Literacy Assessment Tool (ELAT) Project will all remain current and usable; this is simply a change in the assessment name.
