This bundle has 2 out of 3 sections of the Benchmark Advance K-6 Foundational Skills quick-checks. The three sections are: 1) Phonological Awareness, 2) Phonics and Word Recognition, and 3) Oral Reading Fluency.
This bundle includes 1) Phonological Awareness and 2) Phonics and Word Recognition.
The first section of this bundle is Phonological Awareness. It has less questions than BA, so less paperwork. This assessment has the same format as BA but different words are used. This quick-check can be used for your students needing
intervention and quickly seeing what skills you need to hit the hardest.
The first section tests: words in a sentence, rhyming, initial, middle, and ending sounds, isolating/blending phonemes, & substituting phonemes.
*This assessment has less questions, designed to be given in parts throughout the year, and of course, less paper and time is used.
