Assessments and Report Cards (Free)

Assessment, assessment, assessment...Sound familiar?

This year we revised our report card.  I have had many requests for a copy of what ours looks like.  I just finished the editing today with the help of our fantastic kindergarten team.

You can grab your free copy below. 
 You can edit the following fields: School Name, Student Name, Teacher, and Principal.
I am sorry, I am not able to send the Power Point version. 

 These are the assessments I use with my class.

My Math Assessment Pack is fully aligned with the Common Core Standards.  I spent last summer revising it so many of the assessments can be given in a whole group setting (vs. one-on-one).
 I had intended on revising the English Language Arts Assessment, but I ran out of time this summer... How did that happen??  It is on my "to do" list, but THAT list is long. 
Additionally, we will do the DRA in December and we have a district writing assessment.

Sweet friends... I would love to hear your feedback on this!!!

How are your assessments going?

    1. Thank you Barbara! It looks like the Google Docs is a little overwhelmed right now. Can you try again a little bit? If it still does not work, can you email me?

  2. It worked for me. I am very interested in how you report to parents. We have a very vague report card that doesn't give parents much info. Yours is very specific.

    1. Thank you Laura! We hand out the first report card to the parents during our conference time. So we have the opportunity to explain it.

    1. Sorry... if you could try again. It looks like it has been downloaded a few hundred times, so perhaps that is the reason you are having trouble.

      You can email me if you don't have luck tonight.

  5. Hi Deedee~
    This is wonderful! I printed it out, and will be bringing it to my next PLC day to show how detailed your report card is in Kindergarten. I also love both assessment packs!
    Thank you!

  6. I love your report card! I wish we could use it! We have to use our county's and it is Sooo general. Literally just a letter grade in reading, math, science, writing, and social studies. I also love how you show what is expected each 9weeks. Yours is also more developmentally appropriate than our county's expectations! If our little guys can't recognize all letters by the end of the first quarter they are below level! So not fair to these kids!

  7. OMG!!! Thank you! This is my second year using your assessments packs, and I can't wait to give this information to the parents. Our report cards are a bit outdated, and do not reflect the Common Core Standards. With these sheet I will be able to effectively communicate to the parents what skills need to be worked on the most. You are awesome!

  8. All of my SLO's needed to be completed 2 weeks into the school year. How is that for being developmentally appropriate in Kindergarten. Nothing like earning the trust of 4 and 5 year olds. None the less, we all got through it and we are well into the year. We use Fountas and Pinnell for our reading assessment in January and May. We adopted that last year. Before that we used the DRA.

  9. I am sure that many, many teachers are grateful for your assessment models. I know that at my school we were always looking for the perfect way to communicate to parents. It's so important. Renee

  11. I love this! Our report card is common core, but it just lists the standards and it's 1 for emergent, 2 for approaching, 3 for mastered, and 4 for exceeds. The trouble is that until you have mastered all the parts of the standard the student is supposed to be a 2. I really feel that the report card gives no good information (except for the checklist on the back that says which letters and numbers the have "passed"). I have been wondering how to communicate the information I was getting from your assessment packs. I never did come up with anything I liked. This looks great!

  13. Looks great Deedee! We still haven't finished revising ours. The school is now converting to Common Core, so we will finish the report card then. I will be adding this to my folder of resources. Thanks!!!

  14. Love the report card, thanks for the great freebie Deedee! I was wondering if sometime you could share how you organize assessment data in your classroom? Do you use student data notebooks/portfolios?
