Use this form to informally assess listening skills of your ELLs. The document has specific rubric criteria for ELLs in preK-K, grades 1-2, and grades 3-5.
For example, study the checklists first so you are familiar with each of the assessment criteria based on your ELL's language proficiency (entering, emerging, transitioning, expending or commanding). You can use the form when you confer with the student (during guided reading, independent reading, math, science, social studies etc).
It is simple, knowing where your ELL is, let's say entering, you start there, and see if your student moves within a week or a month. You only check the criteria that you found evidence of. Please, write to me if you have questions about using this document.
