New: Benchmark Conversion Tool

Published: Sept. 27, 2017, 1:46 p.m.

  • For benchmarks associated with old standards, teachers can convert them to new standards.
  • Look for the “Outdated Standards - Click to Update” link.
  • Any items previously used in the old benchmark (questions, performance tasks, and free response) will be automatically selected.
  • Teacher-authored questions cannot be converted — but teachers can write new questions if they want to.
  • When converting a benchmark, there’s a warning that the length and structure of the benchmark will most likely change.
  • A new benchmark and code will be provided after converting the old benchmark — the old benchmark remains untouched.
  • The converted benchmark can be assigned, viewed with progress report data, etc. since it’s no longer based on old standards.
