Delaware Student Testing Program. Work Sampling Assessment: Kindergarten and First Grade Development Guidelines.
Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover.
This document describes domains to be covered by the Work Sampling Assessment of the Delaware Student Testing Programs Kindergarten and First Grade assessment. It contains guidelines to the skills children should demonstrate at these grades. It also describes indicators of these skills in terms of specific achievements. For Kindergarten, the first domain, Personal and Social Development, has a dual focus in that it refers to childrens feelings about themselves and their social development and interpersonal skills. The English Language Arts domain organizes the language and literacy skills needed to understand and convey meaning into four components: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The focus of the mathematics domain is on childrens approaches to mathematical thinking and problem solving. The same three domains are described for first grade, differing from the kindergarten guidelines by their increased developmental complexity. (SLD)
