In education, teachers use pretests to determine what objectives need to be taught and post-tests to evaluate whether the concepts were learned. 

Scroll down to see assessment learning checklists that help determine what a child knows and, as a result, which of the 5 ABCJesusLovesMe Curricula to use. 

All checklists are based upon the curriculum's academic objectives, which details what concepts the curriculum introduces to the child.

 

Tips:

  • Use to determine the level of academic learning that has occurred.  I suggest that the child know at least 75% of each section of the checklist before moving to the next curriculum. If your child seems to be in between two different curricula, I would suggest that you fall back to the curriculum that is a step below.

  • Do not approach these as a test or call them a test.  Strictly use these for your benefit to know what areas of learning still need to be addressed.

  • It may be best to complete this chart over several small units of time instead of in one sitting.  Take the child's lead.

  • Collect the toys and manipulatives needed before beginning.

  • Print worksheets in color or use those in the Curricula WorkbooksUpdated skill checklists are provide in the 2 and 3 Year Workbooks.  

  • Ask the child the name of the shape as well as its color.

  • Circle or mark the answers that are incorrect.

  • Skip any sections which the child is unable to do.  (i.e. If the child does not know the letters do not go through every letter to prove the point.)

  • Use different colored marking pens to denote what the child knew on the pretest vs the post test. Idea from Jessica

  • Read our Developmental Guides to know what is developmentally appropriate for the child's age.
