January 2022 - a new version of the quick reference has been uploaded due to the discovery of errors in the cutpoints for CBMmath CAP and 7/8th grade aReading and aMath.
Benchmarks and norms are always available in FastBridge on the Training and Resources tab but a PDF quick reference document is also available for download below. Remember, there is no guarantee of the accuracy of the quick-reference so always refer to the original benchmark documentation in Fastbridge > Training & Resources > Benchmarks & Norms to ensure you're referencing the most up-to-date information.
In 2021-22, there were Benchmarks and/or norm updates for the following:
- aReading and aMath for grades 7-8 only
- SAEBRS for grades K-12 - moving from two levels to three and from criterion referenced to norm referenced benchmarks
- mySAEBRS for grades 2-12
- All other benchmarks and norms remain unchanged
- mySAEBRS is now available in Spanish (Grades 2-12)
Important Note: FastBridge has not updated the benchmarks in the Iowa FAST system so the risk indicators displayed in FastBridge (and Student Success, as a result) will be incorrect for students who fall within the range of the cutpoint changes to the assessments above.
Thank you once again to Central Rivers AEA for providing a pdf table of Benchmarks and Norms across measures.
