PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This formative writing assessment is a simple method to assess student writing skills at the beginning of the school year, semester, or a writing unit.

Use both the pre-assessment and post-assessment included in this packet to produce and document data to demonstrate student growth in writing.

Both assessments offer students the choice of two inspirational quotes in which to respond in paragraph form. Six ideas for how to respond to the quote help guide student success.

The scoring guide included with this assessment breaks down writing areas to word choice, voice, sentence variety, mechanics and grammar, organizational elements, and evidence/commentary. So, while being able to provide a holistic score on the 4-point scoring system, the scoring guide also allows you to mark strengths and weakness in specific writing elements.

At the end of the paragraph writing unit, semester, or year, simply pass out the post-assessment, score, and document student growth on the separate scoring guide provided. The expectations, format, and scoring guide for the pre- and post-assessments are mirrored in order to illustrate accurate growth measurements.

The scoring guide could also be used throughout the unit or year for students to score themselves or peers and help guide them towards success.

This packet includes Teacher Notes, Quote Response Pre-Assessment, Scoring Guide, Quote Response Post-Assessment, and Scoring Guide to Track Student Growth.
