Included in this assessment pack is a collection of rubrics, checklists, and quizzes based on 2nd grade Common Core Writing and Language Standards. Using each of these tools, you will be able to evaluate your students’ writing and language performance and ensure that you are assessing each of the standards during the school year.
Assessment Tools include Rubrics, Checklists, and Quizzes:
Rubrics may be used multiple times during the course of one trimester. Each rubric includes a Writing, Grammar, and Conventions section. Every time you use the rubric, the student will receive feedback in all three areas and you will have three grades to enter into Phidias.
Each checklist includes the Writing Process standards that you will seek to observe in each student during each given trimester. As you meet with students and observe them working during class, you can use the checklist to evaluate them based on a 4-point scale.
Rubrics and Checklists are based on a 4 point scale:
4- Exceeds Standard (95%)
3- Meets Standard (85%)
2- Approaching Standard (75%)
1- Does not meet Standard (65%)
Each quiz corresponds to one language standard. The language standards that do not include quizzes are much better evaluated using a rubric. The quiz should be given after the standard has been taught. You may choose to grade the quiz based on a percentage or on a 4-point scale according to the mastery of the skill that you observe.
