Each correct answer will be worth 1 point. The total assessment will be work 10 points. Depending on the amount of correct answers a student receives will determine if they are learning and retaining the information being taught. It will also show the instructor if there are any patterns if many students get certain question incorrect. It might also show where they need to spend more time on certain areas. By assessing the students every other week it will allow the instructor to intervene with extra support early on if necessary.

There will be some constraints with this assessment. The students will only have a certain amount of time to answer the questions in the assessment. This will have them concentrate on the questions and not what else is going on. The students will be able to use scratch paper but no calculators to assist on the assessment. Some students might not all be at the same level as everyone else in the class. This might show the need to spend more time with certain students or on certain information being taught.

Any child at this age should be able to count 1-20 in order, know and say their alphabet in order and also know their colors and be able to group like colors together. These are some of the first things a student is taught when they go to school. It is the foundation that all other skills are built on. If a student does not know their alphabet they will not be able to read, write, or spell. If a student does not know their numbers they will not be able to complete any basic math or anything having to do with numbers. If a student does not know their colors, they will not be able to describe things or complete other tasks. The alphabet, numbers and colors are the keys to everything else. These are basic skills that all students should know.
