It is the end of the school year and I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure out an organized way of assessing my students. We use the Early Learning Assessment (ELA). ELA encourages teachers to use observations, anecdotal records, checklists, etc. to help monitor progression towards Kindergarten Readiness and School Readiness within the SKBs (skills, knowledge, and behaviors).
Here are a few of the SKBs that I have compiled to make assessing the SKBs in a formal setting easier:
Remember that this assessment tool should not be used exclusively. Formal assessments only represent one part of the child's picture. Be on the lookout for fun ways to assess the students on these skills in centers, small group, whole group, and outdoor play.
