The Basic Skills Checklists features over fifty reproducible assessments to help you evaluate elementary pre-academic readiness and academic skills. Use them to get a quick snapshot of a child's abilities, to monitor progress or to help teachers transition students from one grade or class to another.
Each checklist includes an introduction, description, step-by-step instructions for individual and group administration, materials needed, task presentation, scoring, and reviewing results. Checklists cover Basic Concepts, Reading and Language Arts, Math, Fine Motor, and Independence, as well as a Parent Checklist.
