Understanding what students in a classroom already know is the first step. The Galileo Benchmarks series includes three assessments that can be administered at the beginning, middle, and end of year. The first assessment administered will provide a placement for students. These assessments provide an IRT scale score as well as information about student mastery of individual domains. The two additional benchmark tests are given in intervals throughout the year tracking progress. From these benchmarks, data points identify which students are at-risk and which students are meeting benchmark goals. This is illustrated through changes in the student performance levels and risk levels.

This rich data is available within the Galileo comprehensive reporting suite. The Dashboards reports support the continuous gathering of data to support effective teaching and learning, resulting in high student achievement that is based on today’s standards for college and career readiness. Educators can use Galileo to track student growth and achievement, which includes evaluating student progress toward standards mastery as well as college and career readiness as measured by statewide assessments.
The reports also provide detailed information about student strengths and weaknesses including their level of mastery of individual state standards. This powerful portrait of student learning is made possible by transforming high-powered data analysis procedures such as IRT, test scaling procedures, and inferential statistics into practical, interactive reports that educators can use to facilitate quality instruction, enrichment and re-teaching activities. The reports present multiple measures of student performance, including raw scores (number/percent correct), Developmental Level (IRT scale) score ability estimates, standards mastery classifications, growth, and risk information.
