Additional Benchmark Universe Resources


Here is another very helpful website http://resources.benchmarkeducation.com/ that Barbara Andrews has shared with Stanton teachers during our training sessions. This website is different from the New Benchmark Universe site we have been using. This is a FREE website that you just have to log in and register for. Benchmark Universe is in the process of pulling all of the resources on this website into their main website, but in the meantime it is accessible to everyone. Some of the resources include:

  • Informal Running Record forms - There are multiple forms for each level! You will need to access the books on www.newbenchmarkuniverse.com and click on My Library. Students can read the book from the computer or IPad as you take the Running Record
  • Fluency passages called "posters" that focus on various skills such as pausing, inflection, and speed & accuracy
  • Oral Reading Passages in SPANISH
  • Tips and Tools for teachers
Please take a minute, if you haven't already, to set up your free account so you can have access to all of these resources!
