Using the Ready for TAKS? Benchmark Tests and Ready for TAKS? Intervention in Your ClassThe Ready for TAKS? Benchmark Tests will help you diagnose and assess the diverse skill levels of the students in your class, and will help you better prepare students for the TAKS tests.
Administering the Ready for TAKS? Benchmark Tests
Prepare a copy of the appropriate multiple-choice test and answer sheet in this book for each student who will take the test. Provide students with scratch paper. Use the TAKS Benchmark Pre-Tests to diagnose whether students are having difficulty and require Intervention. Use the TAKS Benchmark Post-Tests to assess whether students have made progress after they have had Intervention.
Scoring and Reports
When students have finished, collect all the tests and use the answer key to score them. For the TAKS Benchmark Pre-Tests, use the TAKS Doctor to diagnose errors. Record the scores on the Student Benchmark Test Profile and Class Benchmark Test Profile reports. Use these reports to keep track of students having difficulty on particular TEKS. Use the Class Benchmark Test Recording Sheet, and Student Intervention Plan to determine the steps needed to address problem areas, and to organize appropriate Intervention resources.
Intervention
The Diagnosis and Prescription: Student Mastery Chart indicates the Intervention resources for the TEKS. When more review is necessary, provide students with the appropriate TAKS Mini-Review to help them prepare for the TAKS tests.

Other Materials Available for TAKS Test Preparation Ready for TAKS? Benchmark Tests are available in different formats:
Ready for TAKS Intervention for Grades 6 through Exit Exam [CD-ROMs]allows teachers to assign the TAKS Benchmark Pre- and Post-Tests to whole classes or individual students. The Reports show which students are having difficulty on particular TEKS. Teachers can choose to have interactive Intervention materials automatically assigned to students requiring help.
Ready for TAKS Intervention Online for Grades 6 through Exit Examprovides diagnostic assessment and interactive Intervention and Practice. The TAKS Benchmark Pre-Test Reports show which students are having difficulty on particular TEKS. Teachers can choose to have the interactive Intervention materials automatically assigned to students requiring help. Once students have completed the Intervention, the system automatically assigns the appropriate TAKS Benchmark Post-Tests. The TAKS Benchmark Post-Test Reports show which students are proficient and which students need more help.
TAKS Prep Workbookprovides extra practice for students by using alternative strategies to reteach skills that are tested on the TAKS.
Countdown to TAKS Transparenciesprovides practice on skills that are tested on the TAKS. The Transparencies can be used as lesson warm ups, or as daily or weekly quizzes.
