Need a quick way to assess your students' progress before and after skills are taught? These CCSS ELA aligned pretests and posttests will help! The PDF download includes 17 pages of assessments with attached rubrics that will quickly show you, the child, and parents if language skills have been mastered. These easy to use tests are designed with a pretest on one side and an EXACT DUPLICATE posttest on the other that can be folded or cut in half and used in a variety of ways. You can give each one at the beginning and end of the school year, or choose the ELA standards you wish to cover and give at the beginning and end of a semester, grading period, or unit study. I like to cut them in half and staple the pretest to the front of classwork and the posttest to the back and make a portfolio packet to use during conferences to allow parents to view their child's growth, areas that need work, and mastered skills. Give them anytime you'd like a quick and easy to grade method to determine student progress and mastery!
*The pretests are also great to use when you need quick proof of skill mastery for students working above grade level. If they easily master the pretest, they can move on to something else.
