Frequently asked questions

Can I use a mix of materials from the BAS 2nd and 3rd editions?
No. Changes have been made to both the Benchmark Books and the Recording Forms. Using BAS 2nd edition books with BAS 3rd edition Recording Forms will not work because the text of the book and the text on the form will not always match, which will affect your ability to score a reader’s accuracy.

Why is it important for everyone in my school to use the same edition?
We understand the critical importance of maintaining consistency in assessment protocols within schools and across regions. Due to modifications in the scoring rubrics, it is important for all classrooms and/or teachers to be using the same edition. Co-mingling of 2nd and 3rd edition of BAS within the same school is not recommended for the following reasons:

  • Scoring has been refined. Increased rigor in administration and analysis will result in more consistent scoring and determination of students’ instructional and independent levels.
  • As a result, assessing students with BAS 2nd edition may result in a slightly higher score than peers assessed in BAS 3rd edition. It is important to maintain consistency in assessment protocols within schools/ regions and continue to assess with BAS 2nd edition or convert to BAS 3rd edition.
  • While the more rigorous comprehension scoring will be reflected in the ODMS for BAS 3rd edition, all student assessment data from all editions will continue to exist within the ODMS
