Benchmark Assessment Data

  • All students in kindergarten - 9th grade completed reading and math benchmark assessments during the fall of 2020. The assessments are part of a student’s achievement profile and help our schools ensure we have all necessary educational supports in place.

    In Fraser Public Schools, we realize that our students do not come to us as “one size fits all” learners; they have different learning styles and learn at different rates. The district conducts benchmarking several times throughout the school year to progress monitor student growth.

    Individual results were shared with parents/guardians in November, 2020, and are summarized on this page. This is part of our Extended Continuity of Learning Plan and helps to ensure student achievement remains a focus during this global pandemic.

    On August 20, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed into law Public Act 149, which took immediate effect as part of the Return to Learn package of laws. Public Act 149 of 2020 requires all districts to administer benchmark assessments to all students in grades K-8.

    Fraser Public Schools falls under Scenario 2 of PA 149: A school district chooses to use a local benchmark assessment or “another benchmark assessment with progress monitoring tools.”

    Specifically, Fraser Public Schools uses the following assessments: 

    Fraser Public Schools has long used these assessments, along with other data points, as part of our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).

    Each of our schools holds data days, where student data is analyzed, and intervention plans are developed and put in place.
