I created this basic beginning of the year assessment after viewing several other assessments and finding that none of them quite fit my needs. I found that I had to adjust my initial assessments to reflect the new Common Core Standards. My kinder team determined what items we wanted to assess and came up with this list: colors, letters, letter sounds, numbers, rote counting by 1's and 10's, and counting objects up to 20. This assessment covers those items.
There are two options - one that includes color names and score lines and one that does not. I prefer to print the one with the color names and scores for myself and slip the other one in a clear sheet protector for the students to use while I assess. :)
I hope you find it useful!
