Phonics Assessment Materials
See your grade level Assessment Expectations to determine which assessment is expected to be administered at a specific time of year. The following assessments are found in the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System 1, Edition 1 Assessment Forms book. Below are the specific pages to reference for directions when administering and scoring each assessment. There are additional assessments in this resource that are not listed below, which you may wish to use at any time with select students to gather more information.
See pages 230 - 234 for specific information.
Clarification for Assessing Initial Sounds:
- Give credit (one point) only when the child can MATCH the two pictures with the same initial sound and PRODUCE the initial sound. Give no credit for that item if either matching or producing the initial sound is missing.
- TestWiz currently shows the total score for Initial Sounds as up to 10 points. The maximum points should be out of 8. This error will be fixed for 2018-2019, but does not affect current progress-monitoring for students or performance levels (Meets/Not-Meets) since the number of items students need to Meet Expectations does not change.
