In September we begun Benchamrking to assess the childrens reading level and colourband. However, a problem arose when the majority of my children came out of the asssessment on a far lower colour than the previous teacher said. Now my children have been reassessed and although progress is being made, it isn't as quick as I hoped and they are still a long way from where they were in accordance with last years teacher. Do you use Benchmarking? Do you feel it's accurate? HELP! What do I do to accelerate the reading?
