This resource offers a complete assessment for Grade 6 Health. The outcome indicators are those for the Saskatchewan curriculum, but they will also meet the expectations for most provincial and state curriculum.
Since the topics for Grade 6 Health are of a sensitive nature, it is possible that all students might not take an active role in the class learning environment. For each outcome indicator there is an open-ended question for students to answer to show that they have achieved the outcome. Then there is a reflection question on the indicator for the students and space for a teacher response.
There is a grading rubric included for assessment purposes. The weight given to this binder varies from 10% to 25% of the final grade. Instructions are included at the beginning for setting up the binder at the beginning of the year. The responses can also be assessed in terms of Language Arts writing outcomes.
