Preschool Assessment


What is assessment?

Preschool and Pre-K assessment is a critical component of the teaching process, it’s not something that should be done just because we “have to.” 

Research has shown that assessment drives instruction.  Teachers should assess what their students know so they will better understand what they need to teach. 

Assessing our students will keep us from teaching concepts that have already been mastered and wasting valuable time. 

Assessing students allows the teacher to teach critical skills that must be mastered now in order for students to be successful later.

Preschool and Pre-K Assessment

Planning for, preparing, and assessing students can be overwhelming and stressful. Teachers often have many questions about assessments such as:

  • What skills should I be assessing?
  • How do you organize assessments?
  • Where can I find teacher-tested, teacher-created assessments?
  • What should I do with the information I have collected?

Preschool and Pre-K Assessment Tools

Based on my many years of experience in the classroom and the questions above I have created an 18 page packet of assessment tools that will help you not only assess your students but organize your data. The Student Assessment Packet will help you:

  • Save time by providing you with the tools necessary to assess your students
  • Identify trends in your data or gaps in student learning that will help you determine what skills to focus on
  • Organize your assessments so you can fill out your report cards quickly

    Important Report Card Info

    Can I buy the report card and use it for my entire school or district? Your purchase of any document from Pre-K Pages is for one single user (teacher). To use the electronic report card (or any purchased document) for more than one user you will need to purchase multiple copies, one per teacher. For more than ten users please contact me for a multiple user license quote.
    The report card isn’t working, what should I do? After you receive the link to your report card via email, download and save the document to a safe location on your computer. Then, navigate to the location where the document was saved and open it in Adobe Reader. Your version of Adobe Reader must be current to use the document properly. If you are experiencing difficulty with the magic wand or other advanced features this is an indication you have opened the document in ‘preview’ mode, which ​does not support the advanced features offered in this product. You must use Adobe Reader to open the document or the advanced features will not be fully functional.
    Can I change, add, or delete the skills assessed on the report card? No, the document is not editable.
    I don’t teach Pre-K or Preschool, can you make a custom electronic report card for me? Maybe. Please know that the skill required to create an electronic document of this sort requires many hours of highly skilled Javascript coding. If your school or district is willing to make the investment please contact me to receive a quote.
