This package includes kindergarten ELA benchmark assessments for the entire year. I administer assessment 1 in September, assessment 2 in December, assessment 3 in March, and assessment 4 in June, but they can be administered however works best for your use.
*This product is used for kindergarten at my school, but may also be used for Pre-K or 1st grade depending on the curriculum of each individual school.
The first 9 pages are the recording pages, which also explain how to administer each section of the assessments. The pages following that are the assessment pages that the student would see.
I am the special education coordinator and RTI coordinator at my school, and I developed these benchmarks for my entire school, so each teacher administers these assessments 4 times per year for Response to Intervention (RTI) purposes. Students who score below 65% may be referred to tier 2 of RTI. In administering the benchmarks to each student, the teacher is also able to identify skills that the whole class is struggling with, and can use the information to review or reteach that skill to the class.
The ELA benchmark assesses:
-upper and lowercase letter identification
-letter sound recognition
-beginning letter identification
