Formal Assessments and Evaluations (Virtual Only)

Families are often in need of a formal education evaluation from an objective licensed educator for homeschool reports, a second opinion, or for personal use such as at-home instruction. I offer formal assessments with an educational summary for families with students in grade levels K-5 in reading and math. The formal evaluation performed and provided by Kara Cashwell and My Rockin' Tutor are for educational purposes only. The assessments are education-based and not medical-based. The formal and assessments and evaluations may be used as data among education teams within a school setting or shared with medical professionals.

Math- ADAM K-7 Math Assessment

from the Seton Testing website:

ADAM is a K-7 comprehensive, diagnostic assessment of mathematics. It is aligned with NCTM’s (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) five content strands. ADAM K-7 thoroughly assesses a student’s complete mathematical understanding to provide a comprehensive picture of his or her strengths and weaknesses. In addition, ADAM K-7 uses revolutionary adaptive logic to maximize the amount of information obtained on each student while minimizing test-taking time and anxiety.

Reading- Teacher's College Running Record Benchmark Assessment

 from the Teacher's College website:

Running records are one glimpse into what children do as readers. A running record can give teachers helpful information about a child’s fluency, accuracy, and literal and inferential comprehension of a text, information that can be used to support that child’s reading growth. 

Word Study / Spelling Assessment

from ReadingRockets.org

Word study is an approach to spelling instruction that moves away from a focus on memorization. When students study the pattern layer, they look beyond single or paired letter sounds to search for larger patterns that guide the grouping of letters (e.g., CVCe).

Examining each layer of the orthography helps students to see the regularities, patterns, and derivations in English words — how words work in our writing system. Word study also teaches students how to use this word knowledge strategically to support their spelling attempts during writing activities and to help them decode unfamiliar words while reading (Bear & Templeton, 1998).

Licensed Educator Summary Report

The summary report is my (Kara Cashwell's) written analysis of the assessment results. The report includes demonstrated strengths, areas for growth, and suggestions for instruction in the subject assessed. This work is done outside of the assessment session with a student and therefore has a separate fee.
