This file contains the method I use for collecting data on the children in my pre-K classroom for basic skills like number, shape, color, and letter recognition, letter-sound correspondence, as well as rote and 1:1 counting.
You can use the included data form to keep track of the specific skills that each child has and then enter the information into the spreadsheet as a method for communicating what each child can do to his or her parents.
This is a great way to measure student growth throughout the year and a nice visual for seeing where the child is compared to his or her peers. It can also help you identify children who may need extra attention in any of the skill areas.
What you’ll find in this document:
1. Pre-K Skills Benchmarks
2. Pre-K Skills data sheets (I use these to have access to the specific results of the assessment and send a copy home to the parents along with the Pre-K Skills spreadsheets*
3. Pre-K Skills spreadsheets. *The first data sheets are comparative so that you can see the previous assessment and the current assessment on the same page, I have also included individual forms at the end.* I use these for quick reference and also send a copy home with the parents.
