Reading Assesment Tools
Here are some great resources to help you add variety to your assessment techniques. Assessment Standard C of the National Science Education Standards implies a need for multiple forms of assessment and recommends the following: (a)The feature that is claimed to be measured is actually measured, (b) Assessment tasks are authentic, (c) An individual student’s performance is similar on two or more tasks that claim to measure the same aspect of student achievement, (d) Students have adequate opportunity to demonstrate their achievements, and (e) Assessment tasks and methods of presenting them provide data that are sufficiently stable to lead to the same decisions if used at different timeslick here to add text. Click "HERE"

Quick Reading Assessment(Excellent)
Sonlight's Quick Reading Assessment is designed to help you find your student's reading level. Armed with this  knowledge, you will be able to better select the readers that correspond with our early curriculum programs. Please  keep in mind that this tool will assess your student’s ability to read/decode, but will not evaluate comprehension  skills.
If your student reads beyond a grade 4-5 level, this assessment is no longer needed as your curriculum selection is  then based more on content and maturity than reading ability

Students  estimate, measure, and describe objectsin space. They use patterns to help  solve problems. Theyrepresent numberrelationships and conduct simple  probability experiments

Grade 4 Assessment
By the end of grade four, students  understand large numbers and addition,subtraction, multiplication, and  division of whole numbers. They describe  andcompare simple fractions and decimals.  They understand the properties of, andthe relationships between, plane  geometric figures. They collect,  represent, and
analyze data to answer questions

Grade 5 Assessment
By the end of grade five, students  increase their facility with the fourbasic arithmetic operations applied to  fractions, decimals, and positive and
negative numbers. They know and use  common measuring units to determinelength and area and know and use  formulas to determine the volume of  simplegeometric figures. Students know the  concept of angle measurement and use aprotractor and compass to solve problems. They use grids, tables,  graphs, and
charts to record and analyze data

Grade 6 Assessment
By the end of grade six, students have  mastered the four arithmeticoperations with whole numbers, positive  fractions, positive decimals, and  positive
and negative integers; they accurately  compute and solve problems. They applytheir knowledge to statistics and  probability. Students understand the  concepts
of mean, median, and mode of data sets  and how to calculate the range. Theyanalyze data and sampling processes for  possible bias and misleading conclusions
they use addition and multiplication of  fractions routinely to calculate theprobabilities for compound events.  Students conceptually understand and  work
with ratios and proportions; they  compute percentages (e.g., tax, tips,  andinterest). Students know about p and the  formulas for the circumference and
area of a circle. They use letters for  numbers in formulas involving geometricshapes and in ratios to represent an  unknown part of an expression. They  solve
one-step linear equations

Grade 7 Assessment

By the end of grade seven, students are  adept at manipulating numbers andequations and understand the general  principles at work. Students understand  and
use factoring of numerators and  denominators and properties of  exponents. Theyknow the Pythagorean theorem and solve  problems in which they compute the
length of an unknown side. Students know  how to compute the surface area andvolume of basic three-dimensional  objects and understand how area and  volumechange with a change in scale. Students  make conversions between different units
of measurement. They know and use  different representations of fractionalnumbers (fractions, decimals, and  percents) and are proficient at changing  from
one to another. They increase their  facility with ratio and proportion,  computepercents of increase and decrease, and  compute simple and compound interest.
They graph linear functions and  understand the idea of slope and its  relation toratio.

Math Mammoth placement tests - free math assessment
The placement tests below are "end of the year" tests  for Math Mammoth complete curriculum. In other words,  the tests are meant to be taken AFTER studying the  particular grade. 

You can also use these tests as general math diagnostic  tests, to help you find if your student has any gaps or  has not learned specific topics, because the tests group  the questions by topic. Just look at the test results  per "sections" of similar problems (addition,  multiplication, measuring, geometry, place value,  problem solving). You can always email me your child's  test results if in doubt.

I advice that in order to start with Math Mammoth  complete curriculum for grade level X, the student  should score 80% or more in the previous year's "end of  year" test. Children scoring between 70 and 80% may also  continue with the next grade, depending on the types of  errors (careless errors or not remembering something,  vs. lack of understanding). Use your judgment.

FCAT Released Tests & Questions
The FCAT Released Tests in reading, mathematics, and  science should be used to increase the comfort level of  students and parents with the FCAT, enabling students to  take the FCAT with confidence. Students, parents, and  teachers should use the released tests to better  understand the FCAT and the types of reading passages  and questions included on the test. The released tests  can also be used to illustrate the length of an actual  test and the difficulty of the questions on the test

Looking at Writing
Writing is a process. Writing with kids can be incredibly rewarding. It can also be painstaking and frustrating, for the writer and for the adult. For most writers, it's somewhere in-between. This interactive tool is designed to help teachers and parents learn more about writing.

Looking closely at a child's writing allows us to discover what students know and have learned. We see what writing tools and techniques a student is experimenting with, and what the next steps for instruction might be. Our writing samples from real kids provide examples and next-step guidance for students from pre-K to third grade.

Most states have, or are developing, tests to assess their students’ proficiency in state frameworks of curriculum. Many of these states are including students with limited English proficiency in this assessment process, but a significant number of LEP students have difficulty passing these standardized tests. In this website, Longman is pleased to provide additional practice for LEP students by offering sample standardized reading tests for grades 1 to 8. The reading tests provided here are a combination of multiple choice, short-answer, and long-answer questions. The short-answer and long-answer questions are designed to have students process the information in the passage, analyze it, and organize it for the answer. In this way, these practice questions test students’ analytical abilities, not just comprehension.

Math / Reading Assessment Tools
Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. 
Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, “Does this make sense?” They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
