This is a progress monitoring tool that assesses students’ ability to decode one syllable words that contain consonant blends (initial and final) in isolation and in context. Each assessment takes only a few minutes to administer, and you can get a nice snapshot of your students’ ability and growth. Each assessment contains 20 words in isolation, and then a few sentences that contain the phonics skill of focus. There is a student page and teacher recording page as well. Use the baseline assessment for the post-test to ensure you are comparing apples to apples. I mainly use these assessments for my intervention groups, but they can be used within the classroom as well.
