A Year of Assessments!

I don't know about you, but sometimes I find myself scouring my resources looking for a good assessment for some hard evidence of whether my students have learned what they needed to learn.  Sometimes I feel like I need to "Frankenstein" resources to get a good comprehensive assessment.  Well, guess what?!?!  The Lesson Plan Diva and I have been working hard and we have created a package of an entire year's worth of assessments for both Language Arts and Math!  We even took into consideration the amount of time it takes for teachers to grade, so we've made each assessment 10 questions long for easy grading!  You won't even need that handy EZ-Grader!  =)

That's right!  I'm offering 28 pages of Math assessment goodness!  For each of the 12 units there's a 10 question test and an "Exemplar" style problem solving question for students to think creatively and explain their thinking to show that they are "Experts" in the skill tested.  (Not sure about other schools, but our school is HUGE on Exemplars!  I think they're wonderful . . . not nearly as intimidating as they seem.)

Visit my TpT to pick up the Year Long Math Assessment packet covering 12 units of Math. The Diva and I have got your 1st grade assessments covered all year long.  ;-)

And click on the preview below to get The Lesson Plan Diva's Language Arts Test packet!

(BTW - If you don't know about Exemplars or have questions, let me know.  I'd love for you to maximize the Problem Solving portion of the assessments.)


  1. These are awesome! I am in need of more assessment pieces and these are great! Thanks!

  2. Thanks! We knew how much easier it would make our lives so we hoped that it could help other teachers as well!

  3. These are wonderful! Thank you so much! Do these assessments just cover one topic or do they preview/ review future topics?

  4. These are all Math assessments that cover 1st grade topics. Here are the tests listed below. Each test has a 10 question test and a problem solving question (Exemplar style).

    Unit 1 Number Sense (add/subtract, property of 0, equivalent sets)
    Unit 2 Geometry
    Unit 3 Place Value
    Unit 4 Addition and Subtraction
    Unit 5 Time
    Unit 6 3D Solids
    Unit 7 Data
    Unit 8 Money
    Unit 9 Fractions
    Unit 10 Number Sense(2) (estimate, >,<,= , more/less, ordered numbers)
    Unit 11 Measurement
    Unit 12 Number Sense(3) (rounding, skip counting, word problems, patterns)

  5. Sorry! I just noticed that the link to the Lesson Plan Diva's Language Arts assessments was wrong. It's fixed now!
