Welcome to an exciting new school year.
The beginning of your school year should always include assessing students abilities in English Language Arts. Knowing how students cognitively and independently interact with language skills at the beginning of the school year will help you plan effective instruction for underachievers and students who perform at or above skill level.
The Back to School ELA QuickTrack Assessment is an effective tool to use to confirm what language skills students retained during summer vacation. It covers punctuation, parts of speech, and vocabulary. These three components are contextually interconnected.
For example, the vocabulary component includes words that require students to distinguish correct spelling patterns. The listed words have either the same or similar sounds. Not having the ability to recognize the difference interferes with mastering reading and writing content in any subject area.
In terms of personalized instruction, this is the perfect reference tool to ensure your students are proficient in basic ELA skills. And, most of all, it's a quick way to track or obtain evidence based on students performance.
An answer key is included for your convenience.
I look forward to serving you and your students through educational instruction and helping you to maintain a red carpet classroom throughout the school year.
