This kit provides an easy, clearly defined way to assess children’s emergent literacy skills and progress in Grade R and Grade One. The kit includes measures of letter-knowledge, awareness of sounds, emergent writing and word reading. Towards the end of Grade One, there are tasks which assess children’s sentence and story writing. The kit includes a booklet of instructions and scoring guidelines as well as answer sheets and items for each activity. The assessment can be used in the middle and end of Grade R and at three points in Grade One: beginning, middle and end of the year. The assessment is available in English and Afrikaans.
