Use this easy chart to quickly assess students understanding of a skill. Add your students names, print and as you teach new skills fill in the top "skill" row and use your own marking strategy to show where kids are at.
I use a check mark if they understand the concept, a check plus if they have mastered it, a dash if they are approaching the standard and an x if they are not getting it at all. You can use what ever marks you like though!
This is great for progress monitoring, documentation over time and always helps me easily see who I need to pull for small groups and who I need to challenge more!
