As a teacher, I discovered that not all children do well with the traditional dictation test, yet I wanted to see if students were learning this skill. I created this template to use with my students. Part of the test is dictation of words. The other sections include sentence dictation that can also be used to assess grammar skills being taught and penmanship should you wish. The other 2 sections require teachers to write on the lines. :). There is a section to draw out the words and one that requires the student to become the teacher and correct the spelling of the words. I ran off several forms and had the words written out in advance for these portions as well as creating my answer key. The template allows for students to express knowledge through other intelligences. It allows up to 20 spelling words.
