Formative Reading Assessments using common core standards for grades 3-5. Complete with running records, comprehension questions, and data spreadsheets.
I created this document for my colleagues in grades 3-5 who were struggling to capture multiple pieces of evidence for our new standards-based report cards. We utilize common interim assessments (about 2 per trimester), but we wanted more formative information for parent conferences, daily instructional decisions, and to inform the report card. If you are responsible for maintaining dynamic (flexible) reading groupings and/or data driven instruction around the Common Core Learning Standards, then this is just the right product for you! This zip folder has MS office word, excel, and pdf docs. Please be sure that your computer has MS office before purchasing!
Here are the components:
-Start Here File (pdf)- gives helpful suggestions for using this product to assess students, track data, and create dynamic literacy groupings
-Running Record and Comp Check (MS word and pdf)- printable running record form and three sets of comprehension checks. One set for fifth grade, fourth grade, and third grade. Each set has 8-10 comprehension questions that directly correlate with CCLS learning standards for literature and informational text at each grade level. The MS word doc is editable to customize for your own purposes. The pdf is locked to prevent issues with formatting that could occur if using a different program or version of MS office. PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT refund money if the formatting of the word doc is unusable on your computer. That is why I included the pdf.
-MS Excel Spreadsheet- Track student data using the spreadsheet. Directions for use are included in the Start Here File. Sort student data to create dynamic, flexible groupings aimed at making the best possible instructional decisions for your students.
