The authors at Acadience Learning recently released a new Above Benchmark level for Acadience Reading K–6. The benchmark goals and cut points for risk have not changed. The new Above Benchmark level provides a higher goal for which typical- and high-achieving students and schools can aim.
It has come to our attention that the University of Oregon/CTL data system recently released their own version of benchmark goals for Acadience Reading K-6. Please note that the official Acadience Reading benchmark goals have not changed. The CTL-proposed benchmark goals do not come from the authors of Acadience Reading and we do not recommend using them. The goals proposed by CTL do not meet the Acadience Reading technical specifications for official benchmark goals.
