Grade 4 Common Core Aligned Reading Assessment Bank
An AWESOME collection of over 100 complete assessments covering all fourth grade Common Core reading standards! Over 500 pages total, including texts and scoring rubrics for the majority of the assessments!!
This Assessment Bank was designed to save teachers time in developing assessments to use in assessing student performance in and learning of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The Assessment Bank contains at least one assessment aligned to each of the CCSS (most standards have two or more aligned assessments). The standards in the Assessment Banks are deconstructed into two or more objectives for teaching and learning. The assessments are authentic and curriculum-based and were designed to provide you with relevant student performance data. Included are the texts and scoring rubrics for most all assessments. These assessments were originally designed to be used in conjunction with my Common Core Standards Aligned IEP Goal and Objective Bank, but can be used by any teacher responsible for teaching and assessing the Common Core State Standards.
This particular assessment bank covers the CCSS in the area of English Language Arts - Reading at the fourth grade level. The Assessment Bank is organized into three sections: Literature, Informational , and Foundational Skills, which correspond to the three subdomains of the Common Core Reading Content Standards for fourth grade.
Due to the nature of some assessments and the frequency of administration, I have included multiple forms of most all assessments, (Form A, Form B, etc.). For these assessments, teachers can alternate use of the different forms to reduce the possibility that students may learn the responses to the assessments simply by engaging in the assessment repeatedly. Multiple assessments also allow for the administration of pre- and post-tests to evidence progress and growth in mastering individual standards.
The texts for the assessments are included for most standards and objectives (Provided texts are print material in the Public Domain). Some of the assessments use the same text to assess different standards. In addition, most of the assessments call for rubrics as a means to score student responses. Rubrics are included for most all assessments.
All the reading assessments have an accompanying Assessment Record for teachers to use to document student performance and progress in mastering the standard or objective across trials and over time. Teachers choosing to use these Assessment Records simply transfer the assessment data from the actual teacher or student assessment form to the Assessment Record Form. These Assessment Record forms would be ideal to use to monitor student performance over time and to report student progress to parents during parent conferences or to team members during Individual Education Program (IEP) meetings.
Also included at the end of the Assessment Banks are three CCSS Class Performance Records , organized by subdomain: Literature, Informational, and Foundational Skills. These Class Performance Records can be used to determine the overall performance toward the Reading Common Core Standards for an entire class. Teachers using these forms can easily and quickly see the overall level of performance for all students in one class related to individual standards to assist in planning and making overall instructional decisions.
I hope you find these assessments to be useful, time-saving, and relevant tools to assist you in determining student achievement of the Common Core State Standards and in planning and implementing instruction.
