|Assessment Method||Most popular with:||Well-suited for:||Other Considerations:|
|1. Whole Group: all students assess at the same time (NOT RECOMMENDED)
Unless the class is very small, this method of administering the assessment is not recommended.
|2. One-on-one method: teacher sits with the student while they assess||
|This method is most compatible with kindergarten and some first grade students. The notes feature allows you to document observations you make.|
|3. Small group rotations/centers WITH a teacher present/in proximity||Lower elementary||Students who:
-Can work semi-independently
-May have questions or behavioral issues while working
-Benefit from having a teacher nearby them while they work
|This method is more compatible with Grade 1 and above the first time students assess, and Kindergarten and above if students already have experience using Literably.|
|4. Small group rotations/centers WITHOUT a teacher present/in proximity||Lower/upper elementary and middle school||Students who:
-Can work independently
-Are unlikely to have questions or behavioral issues while working
|This method is more compatible with Grade 2 and above the first time students assess, and Grade 1 and above if students already have experience using Literably.|
|5. Students assess at the back of the classroom during whole group instruction|
|6. Students assess in “quiet corners” in the classroom
|7. Students assess in the hallway
||Middle School||This method is not recommended for the first time that students assess on Literably, and may not be compatible with desktop computers.|
