Amplify Resources for 2018-2019

Amplify  (DIBELS Next and IDEL) Resources 

2018-19 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 – November 28th – December 21st OR January 7th – January 23rd.  CDE is requesting that your dates fall prior to the Winter Break or after the Winter break.
  • EOY Benchmark – April 22nd – May 10th
    • 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
