This assessment is aligned with Texas TEKS, and was designed so that you only need to have one set of the assessment pages per child throughout the year. The five boxes underneath each math concept are meant for you to write the letter grade they would receive on their report cards (such as E, G, S, or N if that is how you grade.) This test can easily be graded by percentage as well, if it is required in your school.
I generally use four different colored pencils for each term.
Red for August, Orange for October, Blue for December, Green for March, and Purple for May. This will show areas of strength and weakness so that you can improve your instruction and tailor it to each child’s needs. Also, if you have not taught a certain concept, just skip the section for the time being. In August, I would try to do all the sections so as to get a more accurate understanding of the children’s starting points.
I hope that you enjoy this product! There are step-by-step directions at the beginning of the pack, so make sure you check that out before administering.
