In this product, I have included four assessments for each of the fourth grade language standards that address the conventions of standard English (4.L.1a, 4.L.1b, 4.L.1c, 4.L.1d, 4.L.1e, 4.L.1f, 4.L.1g, 4.L.2a, 4.L.2b, 4.L.2c).
The topics include: Relative Pronouns and Adverbs, Progressive Verb Tenses, Modal Auxiliaries, Order of Adjectives, Prepositions and Prepositional Phrases, Sentence Fragments and Run-Ons, Commonly Confused Words, Capitalization, Punctuation with Quotations, and Complex and Compound Sentences.
Each assessment has two or three questions which serve as a quick assessment to measure your students’ understanding of each language standard. I have formatted these assessments to take up a half-page each in order to save paper.
I use these quick assessments in my own classroom as a way to form language standard review groups and plan next steps for my whole group instruction. These are also perfect for test prep! I have also included a data collection sheet for each standard that you can use to track individual student growth. My students are given two minutes to complete these assessments in between centers each day. We then take about two minutes to review the answers whole group as a review.
I hope that these quick assessments help your students master the fourth grade language standards and help you to plan effective instruction based on your students’ needs. Please remember to leave feedback on my page, so I can continue to improve my products.
