The First Grade Baseline Evaluation is an optional tool that can be used at the beginning of the school year to help teachers get to know the reading and language skills of each student. The evaluation is composed of seven screenings. Teachers may use the entire evaluation or choose to use those individual screenings that they find most beneficial for their students. The information can aid teachers in planning instruction that will meet the needs of each student. The First Grade Baseline Evaluation is designed to be given individually to students. It can be used to provide a baseline of a student's reading skills at the beginning of the school year. Because the assessed skills will continue to develop over time, this evaluation may be used multiple times throughout the year to monitor progress. This will allow a teacher to tailor instruction most appropriately. The First Grade Baseline Evaluation addresses skills based on "Indiana's Academic Standards--Grade 1." The evaluation covers skills in: (1) Letter Identification; (2) Letter Sound Identification; (3) Phonemic Awareness; (4) Sight Word Identification; (5) Dictation; (6) Reading Comprehension; and (7) Listening Comprehension.
