The Acadience Reading 7–8 Benchmarks and Gate Score Worksheets document and all assessment materials are available for download. In addition to listing the finalized benchmarks, the new benchmarks document describes our research and design specifications, provides additional results from our analyses, and includes new, user-friendly gate score worksheets. If you used Acadience Reading 7–9 in the past, please download and use the assessment materials posted here. Since last school year (2019–2020), we have made some updates to the assessment. One of the biggest changes we made was to the Silent Reading measure. The multiple-choice questions were reduced from 15 per passage to 10 per passage. This change has implications for data management and interpretation. If your school or district has used an older version of the Silent Reading measure (dated 2019–2020 or older and contains 15 questions per passage) during the 2020–2021 school year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team can assist you in adjusting these scores using an equating formula so that they are accurately represented and interpreted.
