IDEAS FOR USE:
*Give the assessment during the first week of school to determine the student’s academic background. Do not expect students to know all of the answers. This is to use as a guide so that you know where to start.
*Use as a benchmark at the beginning, middle, and end of the year to monitor progress throughout the school year.
*The results of these assessments are a GREAT work sample to show to parents so that they know where their child is at the beginning/middle/end of the school year!
*Print, copy, and staple 1 teacher copy and 1 copy for each student that you are assessing.
*Use one colored marker to record student answers on your copy. *Give the student a pencil to record their answers on their copy.
