Assessing Reading and Writing on a Regular Basis
Check out our list of tips for assessing reading and writing on a regular basis.
Oral book reports can be an assessment; however, they must have criteria for the learners to follow. Learners should be expected to read the book and be able to discuss the author, the content, and why they enjoyed the book.
Writing assignments can vary from conveying ideas to writing the facts or both. Be clear about what the writing assignment will be about and what will actually be graded.
Place in your class common mechanical rules that you expect learners to know such as format, spelling, font, and grammar.
The fundamental goal in teaching writing is that learners can improve their written communication.
Instruct your learners to use what, when, why, and where to explain an event. This strategy helps learners clearly express them- selves in writing.
