Kindergarten Assessment Information Jeffco students take 3 benchmark assessments in Dibels (K-3) and MAP (K-5)  each year. Assessment are given in the beginning of year (Aug), middle of year (Dec), and end of year (May). 

Dibels/TRC - an assessment of early literacy skills for students in K-3rd grades.  Early reading skills assessed are phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, and comprehension. 

MAP - an adaptive assessment that provides information for all students regardless if they are currently below, at, or above grade level.  MAP is real time data that is aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards. Teachers are looking for performance over time. Scores may decline from one test to the next. One low test score is not cause for immediate concern.

Purpose for benchmark assessments - performance over time and classroom data collected by your child’s teacher can provide additional information about your student’s success.
