PM Benchmark Reading Assessment Resources

The PM Benchmark Reading Assessment Resources assist teachers to explicitly assess students’ instructional and independent reading levels using unseen, meaningful texts. The emphasis of the PM Benchmark assessment procedures is to ensure that students are comprehending the texts that they read.

Each PM Benchmark Kit contains:

  • 46 levelled fiction and non-fiction texts: which range from emergent levels to reading age 12
  • Teacher’s Resource Book & CD: includes helpful information on how to use each component of the resource. 
  • Modelled Assessments DVD: contains frequently asked questions and professional development videos to assist teachers in effectively assessing students’ reading levels
  • Procedures Card: provides a summary of the recommended procedures for taking a reading assessment.
