The Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments for grades K-2 are fully aligned to Michigan's Academic Standards and may be used as one measure of student growth. The assessments were developed in cooperation with Michigan Educators beginning with item writing and continuing through field-test data review. The benchmark assessments currently offered by Michigan are for students in Kindergarten, first grade and second grade in both English language arts (ELA) and mathematics.
