Screeners and Informal Assessments Round-Up and a {GIVEAWAY}!

Back. To. School.

Whether that fills you with a little bit of excitement, a little bit of dread, or both, it's back to school time!  Don't worry though, a bunch of my blogger/material-making friends and I have tons of informal assessments and screeners to ease you back into the swing of things!  There's something for every need - and all TpT items are on sale August 4th and 5th!  Read on to check out all of the fantastic products and then enter to win an AMAZING giveaway!!


My "Common Core Based Language Assessment" is an informal language assessment based off of the common core, for K5-5th grade students.  Each grade level document features 8-10 questions that can be used to determine useful, individualized goals for each student.  Appropriate answers are given from kindergarten through 3rd grade.  Answers are not given for the 4th and 5th grade assessments since these students are more adept at reading and the assessment could be given in written form to students in those grades.

You can find this informal assessment HERE!

  5. All great informal assessments! I really like the 2nd Grade Speech and Language Checklists because language is so vital to all of my students.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like the social/pragmatic rubrics because that is such a tough area to assess. The SALSA screeners with the pictures that can be accessed with an iPad are great! That is so helpful when traveling to various screening sites. Also, anything that is based on the Common Core standards is going to be helpful when relating goals back to the classroom. Thanks! I am filling up my wishlist!

  7. Having informal assessments already made would save me hours of work in the fall. I hope I get picked. I already use the social pragmatics rubrics and love it

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love them all! I think that the pragmatic checklist would be most useful. I have a bunch of students with pragmatic needs!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love the variety of the assessments to cover my ever changing caseload. I also love the comprehensiveness of the assessments. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would love any of these as all would be helpful starting out in the schools! The SALSA looks great so does the common core scales and social/pragmatic checklists.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks for compiling this list and making the beginning of the school year just a little less crazy (or, at least managing the craziness :))

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks for making this list! These will sure come in handy in September!!

  17. I have a few of these already and love them (Jenna Rayburn's Kinder screening, Nicole Allison's Curriculum Based Language Assessments, The Speech Bubble's Listening Comprehension Screenings, and All Y'all Need's Checklists for grades K, 1, and 2) and they are really helpful. Jenn Alcorn's Common Core Speaking & Listening Rating Scales {K-5} has been on my wish list and I think that SLPRunner's Social Pragmatic Rubrics (Student Directed) looks really useful too. I like that the students judge their own progress in each area.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The pragmatic assessments are always needed! So hard to measure this area

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am always on the lookout for screeners - especially for upper elementary and older.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have purchased several of these products already and have been very pleased! The Checklist Bundle by Smart Speech Therapy and the Phonology Picture Probe/Screener by Bright Ideas SLP look fantastic. On my wish list!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I already have The Curriculum Based Language Assessment K-5 by Nicole Allison and the Social Language & Pragmatics Rubics by The Speech Bubble. I LOVE these!!! I would be very interested in the older student version by Nicole Allison and Social Pragmatic Rubrics (Student Directed) by SLPrunner or the Listening Comprehension Screenings (Common Core). This is SUCH a GREAT list!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a great list of items! I have added many to my wishlist as well! I think the social/pragmatic language tools would be so beneficial since it is such a difficult area to assess. Having a collection of these tools would help to streamline the screening and assessment process for sure! Thanks for the list!

  42. I really need screeners and assessments for the pre-K crowd. while primarily a service provider, we've started doing our own assessments as well. Sometimes I need to know how to refine goals for a small friend, sometimes I need an idea of whether he'll qualify for other area or not.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think I am more interested in the informal assessments than screeners but would love to add all of these tools to my toolbox!!! Thank you for the giveaway!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the social skills components. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. These are all so great! And would be so fantastic to start and continue parts of what little I've gathered so far for grad school! I think the common core standards and the phonetics pictures would be within my top, but they all look great!

    ReplyDelete
  46. SALSA looks interesting to me. It's so hard to find a good, affordable screener.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Tons of these screeners would help me professionally!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am in serious need of informal assessments of any kind, particularly for my elementary age language kiddos. PreK and kinder screeners are also a must have for me. Looks like I need to add some things to my TpT wish list ;) Thanks for providing such a comprehensive list!
