Why use these Benchmark Advance Third Grade Spelling Tests?

Traditional spelling tests require students to focus on memorization, but oftentimes, we see students forget the spelling of words when it comes to actual application in writing. This is a year-long resource that can replace your traditional spelling tests. These can also prepare students for the actual Benchmark tests and perhaps even the state tests because they help students become familiar with the types of questions. According to the CCSS, there is no specific standard for spelling. There are foundational reading standards that relate to phonics, reading, and word study. These spelling tests mostly assess spelling patterns. There are some questions that require students to pick the word spelled correctly, but most of the questions focus on choosing words that have the same vowel sound, similar syllabication, etc.

Some of the types of questions include:

  1. Which of the following words is spelled correctly?
  2. Which word has the same vowel sound as the word ___?
  3. The (sound) in (word) has the same (sound) in the word –
  4. Sentence writing
  5. Questions that require students to select two answers

    I am so excited to use this for the upcoming school year. It is so much more beneficial than traditional spelling tests.

  2. isabel Strobel (verified owner)

    The self-grading spelling tests have been incredibly helpful during distance learning. I assign them as asynchronous work on Fridays.
