If you are like me, you love data and every opportunity with a child is more information! With that said, I have created assessments for every sort in the Within Word stage! The WTW program does have spell checks at the end of each unit but I wanted more data and I didn't want to give traditional spelling tests. If you are familiar with WTW Within Word stage, you know that the first 6 sorts are picture sorts. I have created assessments to accompany those that are in both color and bw. For the sorts that have only words, I have created one to two sentences, which can be dictated to small groups or to individual students. The sentences provide an insight into the student's transference and application of the letter/sound pattern. Each assessment has a point value assigned. What is important is that the kids are spelling the targeted pattern correctly, not necessarily the every word in the sentence. To complete this assessment kit, I have designed two Excel spreadsheets. One has been formatted so that when you enter the score via tablet or computer, the cell will be color coded depending on how the student performed. The other spreadsheet can be printed and scores can be entered by hand. In any event, you will have a systematic approach to tracking your students' progress as they move through the program!
