--Benchmark assessment refers to testing all students within a school or grade three times per year for the purpose of identifying those who may be at risk for reading difficulties. Benchmark assessment is always conducted using grade-level material.
--Progress monitoring refers to testing students more frequently who may be at risk for future reading difficulty on the skill areas in which they are receiving instruction, to ensure that they are making adequate progress.
