The Michelle's have developed a comprehensive assessment tool that can be used by students, teachers and peers participating in The Daily Five. The Daily 5 Detectives can be used throughout the school year to track student progress with Read to Self, Read to Someone, Word Work, Work on Writing and/or Listen to Reading. Each component has a rubric identifying the desired behaviours and a place for the child to show his/her work sample and/or thinking. There is also a personal reflection and goal-setting component for the student in our Daily 5 Detectives. It lends itself perfectly to be shared by the student at parent-teacher and/or three-way conferences. Each component can be introduced and used independently.
