Recommended WPM Benchmarks

Read Seed courses include recommended WPM benchmarks to help teachers quickly assess the progress of their students. Each course has a Fall, Winter, and Spring benchmark that represents an acceptable standard of achievement for that time of the year.

The WPM benchmark goals appear in both the Student Report and Class Report. They are listed beneath the title of the Words per minute chart, and appear as dotted horizontal lines on the chart itself.

The recommended benchmark goals cannot be configured by individual teachers, but they can be changed for an entire grade if the school decides it's appropriate.
