The Benchmark Running Record, an assessment tool used by Houston ISD to determine students’ independent reading levels, is available for K-5 students. Several options are available for administering a Benchmark Running Record:

  • Teachers may select from the online resource available in the HUB for respective grade levels.
  • Teachers may use the Next Steps in Guided Reading assessment kits available at elementary campuses.
  • Campuses that possess DRA2 kits may use those.
  • Spanish assessment kits are also available at elementary campuses.

A Benchmark Running Records post-assessment will be administered at the end of the Summer School program for Reading grades K-2. Results should be recorded in the OnTrack platform. Benchmark Running record data will be recorded in OnTrack.
