On demand writing assessments are valuable tools for both formative and summative assessment. They are open-ended and designed to be given in one class period. Students plan, draft, revise and edit in one sitting. They allow teachers to understand what their students can do independently as writers. This information will help you determine next-steps for your instruction. They can be given at the onset of a unit of study and also as a post assessments at the end of the unit to determine growth. Teachers may also choose to give students the opportunity to self-assess and establish their own goals and next steps.
This bundle includes three on-demand assessments; a narrative, an opinion/persuasive, and informational. Each assessment has an open-ended description of the task, a checklist for students to refer back to, two pages of lines to write, and an area for the teacher to write the student's score. This bundle also includes an additional lined page for your prolific writers.
