1 Creating Tabs that Match Report Card Sections Selecting Tests that Match Report Card Descriptors Customizable Recording Sheets for Convenience Finding Available ESGI tests that align with the CC standards Creating Your Own Tests with ESGI Erica Edmonston Kindergarten Teacher Pepper Drive School

2 Session Goal: ESGI Tabs, Tests and Recording Sheets Aligned to the CC Report Card

3 Disclaimer… I want to be very clear that the tests suggested in the following slides are my suggestions alone, and not sanctioned by the district. I spent time carefully reading the language of the Common Core Standards as well as the Report Card in order to find tests that would best suit the needs of a Kindergarten teacher in Santee. However, you will definitely want to explore the tests for yourself to make sure that they fit your needs. Of course, we should all be using multiple measures of assessment to determine student progress. ESGI is just one tool at your disposal.

4 A Few Notes about Setting Up Your Tabs Tests under the same tab can be included on a single report. Tests can appear on more than one tab, and the results will carry over. This allows you to create specialized tabs for progress reports with only the scores you wish share with parents at that time.

15 Creating Your Own ESGI Tests- Part 1 From Test Explorer, Select Add New Test Note: ESGI has many images pre-loaded that you can use when creating tests. If you want to use your own images, start by going to the Image Gallery tab and uploading them. This way, they will be available to use as you create your test questions

16 Creating Your Own Tests- Part 2 Give your test a unique name and test ID. Then you can decide to share it so other Santee teachers can use it too. Once you select the content area, you can also choose a state standard from the drop-down list. Click here to create test questions. Then you can return to this screen to manage the order of the questions.

17 Creating Your Own ESGI Tests- Part 3 The Short Title is how the question will appear on reports. Add directions for the test administrator. Add images and text to the screen. You can change the font, size and color. ESGI has many images pre- loaded. Change image size here. To change the position of the image, you can click and move with the mouse.

18 Suggested ESGI Tests for TK The TK Report Card is rather simple compared to the Kindergarten Report Card. I opted to include all the tests used for my TK students on a singe tab, enabling me to print a single report for parents with all test results. TK teachers will find many suitable tests specific to the TK standards available from ESGI.
