THANK YOU for your interest in reaching ALL LEVELS of LEARNERS!
The Leveled Assessments for ELA are designed with the idea that students learn skills and understand concepts in a progressive way. Most assessments test students on multiple learning objectives before they’ve had much instruction. This can be overwhelming. These assessments are uniquely leveled to align with one learning standard broken down into a 4-level scale. Each level from 1 through 4 demands increased proficiency. Levels 1 and 2 are working towards grade level mastery; Level 3 aligns to grade level expectations; and level 4 is beyond the end of year grade-level expectation.
If you’re not familiar with Marzano’s Learning Goals and Scales, or proficiency scales, please visit this product link to download some examples of the scales. These Assessments were created to support the 3rd Grade ELA Posters with Marzano Scales, and use the same kid-friendly language to express each learning objective. These pages offer a very clear model of how students can make progress towards mastery in each ELA standard. You can use these for pretests, posttests, homework, classroom practice, quizzes, conference pieces, and of course, grades!
Help your students, families, and administrators SEE student progress in a concrete multi-level assessment!
