Keep on track with the new English/Language Arts Common Core Standards!
*The document is designed for assessing the English/Language Arts standards in kindergarten. It lists every kindergarten common core standard and provides an assessment for each one. Different portions of the standards are addressed separately, so teachers and parents will know exactly what a student does and does not understand about each standard. It is constructed in a manner that student testing and recording documents are one.
One assessment form should be copied for each student. Due to the necessity of assessing students at regular intervals during the school year, the document provides a space to record information for different assessment periods. Adjust the grading columns to fit your school year format. (Quarter, Semester, Trimester) The last three pages of this document is a checklist that can be copied on cardstock and sent home to parents to report progress.
With the adoption of the Common Core Standards, this Kindergarten English/Language Arts Assessment meets a critical need. In addition to thoroughly addressing each standard, it serves as an organizational tool for gathering information about the language arts strengths and weaknesses of kindergarten students. This resource will help you learn more about your students and help you determine the focus of your instruction.
