Benchmark: Reading Comprehension Assessment

Product Description

Looking for an end/beginning of year benchmark for grades 2-3? Then look no further.

The contents and stories are geared toward the end of second grade and the beginning of third grade. This would also benefit those in fourth grade who attend a reading program, and could use this as a teaching tool on a lower reading level.

The assessment consists of 25 multiple choice questions, one table of contents, one poem, one realistic fiction title and one nonfiction title.

The selections for the test are of interest to elementary students and are topics that can be easily related to.

Selections include:

Nonfiction: Red Pandas

Table of Contents: Red Pandas of China

Poetry: Pretty Petals

Realistic Fiction: A Kid's Best Friend

An answer key is provided. This test would greatly support the STAAR reading test of Texas and tests reflecting Common Core Standards.

NOTE: This test can be used as an "End Of Year" test or a "Beginning of Year" test depending upon the grade level and readability levels of your students.
