How Often Will Students Take Assessments?

If Lexile® assessments are included in your license, you may wonder how often students will be prompted to take assessments in myON.

Students begin by taking a Lexile® placement exam after they first log in and complete the Interest Inventory.

Once at least 14 days have passed since the last Lexile® exam was taken, the student becomes eligible for a benchmark. To have the benchmark populate, the student must either read five books OR for three hours.

When the student becomes eligible for a benchmark, the student will either see a purple envelope icon on their dashboard next to the word myON in the upper left corner, or the benchmark will populate after the student finishes the next book once the five books or three hours has passed. To open the benchmark, the student clicks the purple envelope, and the benchmark will populate on the screen.
