NCTM Focal Point Standards
3 Focal Points per grade; each PM measure has 16 items aligned to a single Focal Point. Each Benchmark measure has 48 items (16 from each Focal Point).
Benchmark data need to guide decision-making. In many districts using an RTI framework, all students get Tier 1 and 2; those scoring below a particular percentile on the benchmark and/or non-responders get Tier 3 instruction.
Instructional Decisions: who, what, when, how, where, how often, with whom?
Upcoming studies: criterion-validity studies examining relationship between benchmark measures and state tests in reading and math.
