The Progression Benchmark Test measures a student’s understanding of learning objectives across grade levels through five domains: Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

Each test has an entry point based on the student’s course (or other teacher-specified entry point) and adapts based on student responses to the questions to assess student understanding of the objectives within that domain across varying grade levels.

We recommend only assigning one or two domains at a time. The amount of questions students receive is based on the entry point and on student responses. If students answer correctly, they move on to the next skill. If students answer incorrectly, they are given a lower grade level question for that skill. For instance, if a student enters the test at the Algebra 1 level and incorrectly answers a question, they will then receive the 8^{th} grade question on that skill. This process continues until the student answers correctly or reaches the lowest grade level for that domain.
