After I made my Common Core Math Assessments, I had many requests for a similar language arts assessment version. After months of work, I’m thrilled to announce that I finally finished them and let me just way “Whew!” That was a big project-much, MUCH bigger than I expected! Third Grade Language Arts Assessments & Fourth Grade Language Arts Assessments
I’ve created three assessments for each of the reading literature standards. One of the assessments is an open-ended assessment that can be used with any text. There is also a brief one-page assessment with a short reading passage and questions. I’ve also included a more thorough assessment, where the text is a bit lengthier, two pages, and then there is a page of questions. In that assessment, there are two multiple choice questions, two short answer questions, and one essay question. The essay question is perfect constructed response practice.
I included the same types of assessment for informational text. You could use one of the assessment as a pretest, one for whole class assessments, and one for reteaching or reassessing.
I also included two assessments for all of the language standards. I broke those assessments down by element, so there are quite a few language assessments!
