2023-2024 ELAT Benchmark Windows
When selecting your benchmark windows on this form, please ensure that the assessment dates comply with the following guidelines:
- Beginning of Year (BOY) Benchmark:
- Select a two-week window within the first 30 calendar days of your school year. 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 BOY READ interim assessment within the first 60 days may be used to inform the literacy component of your kindergarten school readiness assessment.
- Middle of Year (MOY) Benchmark:
- Select a two-week window that falls within November 27th – December 22nd OR January 3rd – 26th. (Your dates need to be prior to the holiday break OR after the holiday break.)
- End of Year (EOY) Benchmark:
- Select a two-week window that falls within April 22th – May 17th.
Support for ELAT Benchmark Windows:
