Sentence Formulation Progress Monitoring Rubric with Example for Associations
I created the sentence formulation rubric to analyze data gathered at different points during an intervention of expressive language. To gather the data, I determine the discrete skill that I want to measure and identify the prompts I will use. This can be used for sentence formulation during a sequencing/story re-tell task, analyzing responses to wh-questions, etc.
Included is an example for using the rubric for sentence formulation to measure a student's ability to explain word associations. I select 3 pairs of items and ask students to tell me how they go together. Then I use the rubric to score their responses, looking for an increase in vocabulary, linguistic complexity and level of expressive skills over time.
