1. Any suggestions on assessments? What do you use that's easy, not too time consuming, well-rounded, etc.? 2. With the ABEKA curriculum there is a lot of seat work (work sheets). I try to mark, write comments, etc. on each. So far I've used the happy, straight and sad faces, stickers & the X/Y (number correct/number possible) to "grade". Because we are a pre-school rather than a child care set-up and we use an advanced curriculum, our parents really expect more as well. Kindergarten receives grades. I was thinking about giving grades the last nine weeks.Is there a web site where I can get info about how to grade? How do you grade? 3.Do any of you "test" children before accepting them into your PK-4 program? What do you use? 4. With the VPK in Florida, if you didn't before, do you now have an assessment you use to determine if a child will be promoted to Kindergarten? When do you do this? I've heard that some schools have a "test" (sounds similar to the SATs format) they use in the Spring with PK-4 students and use the same in the Fall, during the first 9 weeks of Kindergarten. Anyone else heard of this? Know what it is? Where to get anything to use? Appreciate any help!
