This 45 page assessment pack includes one and two page assessments for all 20 Fourth Grade Common Core ELA Language standards and sub-standards. It also includes data recording pages and a scoring rubric or answer key for each standard.
All of these assessments are open-ended student responses. There are no multiple choice questions! This is meant to be a rigorous assessment of how each student knows the Common Core standards.
If you find this assessment helpful, I would love to hear your feedback on my Teachers pay Teachers page.
