This Spelling Test Template includes a space to test ten spelling words, a dictation sentence, and a bonus word. There is also a handwriting assessment included at the bottom (teacher checks "Excellent," "Getting Better," or "Improvement Needed").
This template proves to be a neat, routine way to assess spelling words. The handwriting lines encourage students to use proper handwriting, and the quick handwriting assessment at the bottom really motivates students to do their best! They LOVE receiving that check mark in the "Excellent" box!
Aside from collecting students' weekly spelling grades, the handwriting assessment is also a great, easy way to collect handwriting assessment data. Having this data really helps to support Report Card grades/conferencing with parents without having to look back through student journals or without having to implement a handwriting assessment right before Report Cards were due!
The dictation sentence is also an opportunity to collect data on whether or not students use end marks, and capitalize words appropriately.
