The Kindergarten Developmental Writing Checklist
is used to gauge student readiness for guided reading. The administration, scoring, and entry of data for this assessment are completed by the classroom teacher following a trimester schedule. The assessment is scored on a 0 – 6 point scale. This assessment is administered each reporting period until students ascertain a level 3 or higher and data is entered into Infinite Campus. At this point, students have demonstrated the prerequisite skills necessary for guided reading, transition into the F&P/EDL2 assessment occurs, and the Kindergarten Developmental Writing Checklist is no longer required.
