Benchmark Advance Sixth Grade Spelling Tests

This resource includes a spelling test for every week of every unit (a total of 30 tests). These tests use the same testing language as the Benchmark weekly/unit tests, except unlike the BA tests, these ones actually test the week's words. There are also answer keys for every test.

Why use these Benchmark Advance Sixth Grade Spelling Tests?

Traditional spelling tests require students to focus on memorization, but often times, we see students forget the spelling of words when it comes to actual application in writing. If you are a sixth grade teacher who likes to assess spelling, then this is a year-long resource that can replace those traditional spelling tests. These can also prepare students for the actual Benchmark tests and perhaps even the state tests, because they help students become familiar with the types of questions. According to the CCSS, there is no specific standard for spelling. There are foundational reading standards which relate to phonics, reading, and word study (grades K-5). For sixth grade, the standards that relate to what these tests assess are ones pertaining to vocabulary acquisition. These spelling tests mostly assess spelling patterns and word meanings. There are some questions that require students to pick the word spelled correctly, but most of the questions focus on choosing words that have the same vowel sound, similar syllabication, etc.

Some of the types of questions include:

  1. Which of the following words is spelled correctly?
  2. Which word has the same vowel sound as the word ___?
  3. The (sound) in (word) has the same (sound) in the word -
  4. Sentence writing
  5. Questions that require students to select two answers
  6. Note that in some of the units, Greek & Latin roots and different types of suffixes and prefixes are the skills. For these tests, I included questions that test the meaning of the roots, suffixes, and prefixes (not just the spelling of them).
