K Assessments

Project Title
K Assessments

Teachers Names
Rebecca Olsen & Kristin Fredriksson

General Description of Product
To create a computerized version of our Kindergarten skills assessments that will eliminate ancillary components of the individual tests, i.e. rhyming cards, patterning, number secquencing, etc. Additionally, we hope to create games for student practice, in order to develop specific skills.

Project Purpose:
We will have more time to spend with students, individually and in groupings, to help improve skills and develop cognition in each of the skill areas.

Project Curricular Connection:
Our product will address all of the Kindergarten standards. Students will gain general knowledge and practice on keyboard, mouse manipulation, etc.

Project Support:
DVD’s or CD’s so that programs developed can be shared with all Kindergarten teachers on site.

Project Collaboration:
See above.

How will you collaborate as a team & what will each person’s role be.
Since we are working in a very small group, we will each take on a section of the Kindergarten skills to investigate and search for on-line resources and, ultimately, produce our program jointly.

Brilliant idea! Let's hammer out specifically which standards you want to make assessments for, which program(s) you will use and a format so they kinda look the same. Better to stick to 1 or 2 programs so the kids are tested on their knowledge of the content and not if they know the program. (Kidspiration is my favorite:) I have a few samples if you are interested. Also if you are up for it, I would love to get you guys using the ActiVotes. Let me know.

Will do chicarita. We want to try to eliminate some of the many cumbersome testing tools and paper packet that we all test from. The goal is to make the individual tests more engaging and easier to administer.
