These books are designed to be used in conjunction with each other. The Student Edition is comprised of TWO Blueprint Benchmarks and Four Category Tests of 20 questions each. There are no repeated questions on any of the tests and each question was written specifically to address the associated TEKS.

The Assessment Bookscontain the following sections:

  • Blueprint Benchmark Forms A and B (SE)

TEKS Checklists

The TEKS Checklists combine an in-depth understanding of the TEKS along with vertically aligned expectations from
surrounding grade levels. This tool was developed by teachers for teachers as a must-have road map!

Wondering what to do for RtI? The vertical alignment helps to understand the concepts that were taught in the previous
grade to determine a place to start.

The TEKS Checklist cards are designed to make sure all aspects of the TEKS are covered in both classroom instruction, as well as, assessments.

TEKS Checklists Contain:
  • TEKS Breakdown for ALL TEKS, including those not tested and Process TEKS
  • Essentials with pointers and tips for each TEKS
  • Vertical alignment for each TEKS
  • Verb Glossary
