Free (Part 2): Mini-Assessments



Just like yesterday, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!  We will use the Random Generator to create a winner for today.  PLEASE comment.  Remember to leave your email address in the comment.  The winner will receive ANY ONE item featured in this post.  Comment so you will be sure to WIN!!



Just like the cartoon above...  We teach, but how do we KNOW they "get it"?  Well, WE ASSESS!!  The most useful way for a teacher to "know" is by giving mini-assessments along the way.  I like giving 1 pre-test, mini test 1, mini test 2, mini test 3, then a post-test.  This is usually how I evaluate students and graph data.

Short, but frequent, mini-assessments are less time consuming and allow teachers to see a "snap-shot" along the way.

The three of us (Kathi, Stephany, and I) have created several mini-assessments to help evaluate students.  We have also correlated each assessment to Common Core standards.

The Common Core standards can be found here.  They are organized by grade level and subject area.  You can also download the standards in a pdf file.



Kindergarten

I have created mini-assessments for several of the Common Core Standards.  Here are some free downloads for kindergarten.






 



I also have a several kindergarten mini-assessments for purchase.  They are listed here.

 





First Grade

Below are first grade mini-assessments for language arts and math assessments.   Included are assessments for 1.L.2a, 1.L.2c, 1.L.2b, 1.L.1e, 1.RF.2b, ALL first grade measurement standards, ALL first grade geometry standards, and the first four Operation and Algebraic Thinking standards.

Second Grade
Here are mini assessments for second grade Common Core Math Standards.  They include ALL Geomerty Standards, ALL Numbers & Operations in Base Ten, ALL Operations & Algebraic Thinking and 2 of the Measurement & Data Standards.  I have started on the remaining Measurement & Data Standards. 




 













How do you manage assessing all the new Common Core Standards in your classroom?
Endless Possibilities,
