Reading Checkpoints are the main assessment component of Core Clicks. These 5- to 10-question, performance-based assessments challenge students to apply the literacy skills they’ve built in the Text Studies to new and unfamiliar texts. The interactive questions contain formats that students have encountered and practiced in Core Clicks Text Studies: text-marking, multiple-choice, and, for Grades 3-5, text entry and short answer questions. Completing these types of independent reading tasks is critical in preparing your students for digital assessments.
Core Clicks includes:
Upon completion of a Reading Checkpoint, students’ work is captured and scored automatically, with the exception of short-answer questions. Teachers use a rubric to score the short-answer questions, and reports on student progress can be generated at the student, class, or district level. Learn moreSee Sample Report
Core Clicks is packed with formative assessment opportunities that allow teachers to monitor student comprehension as they explore the lessons.
Core Clicks reporting allows teachers and administrators to track completion of assigned work, as well as individual and class performance on Question Quests (quizzes) and Reading Checkpoints (performance-based assessments). The data also provides information on student exposure to and acquisition of key literacy skills.
Reports are available at the student, class, school, and district level.
