In order to get ahead of the game, I decided to redesign our fall and spring checklists for Pre-K. Our old format led parents to believe we just filled in the information ourselves and didn't ask the students the information. So this time I chose to include the words "I can." Hopefully that will let them know that their child identified the information. If you would like a copy, click here.
We use work sampling online to assess our students. If you are not familiar with this format, it has 54 standards that have to be evaluated on students over a 18 week period. I always find myself stressed at the end looking for documentation for these checklist items. We do all of the things more than once but each student cannot have the same documentation for the same area. It has to be child specific. So in order to keep me on top of things I took the standards and broke them down for the beginning of the year. I am hoping this will help me gather data on all students through pictures, work samples, or matrices in that month. Of course, I will gather documentation on these more than once but this will help me make sure I have at least one form of documentation by rating time.
