This is one writing assessment I designed for my Kindergarten class. I assess writing pieces 1-2 times per month and use it to guide my whole group lessons/mini lessons.
It can also be used as a progress monitoring piece. I add the totals from all of the columns and rows to see the progress with both the whole group and also each individual student. You can then compare the numbers with previous assessments.
I use the numbers to group my students. I give them Language Arts center assignments specifically targeted to their needs expressed by this assessment.
I then hold individual conferences with each student to go over their work, allow them to self-check their work, and then discuss future goals for their writing. (Something as simple as, "Tomorrow I really want you to focus on putting finger spaces between all your words")
I just use a Yes or No for the last two columns (Complete sentence and Neatness)
Please let me know if you would like anything altered/added in order to meet your needs.
