Prior to the assessment, give thestudents multiple opportunities to perform at the standard level and practice written responses. Standard Check-outs can be used for this support. There is amisconception that since students were in RMSE the last two years they will not be able to perform at the level of these common assessments at the beginning ofsecond grade. In actuality, independent practice pages from RMSE and transitions are similar to the expectations of these assessments.Greeley-Evans School District 62016 - 2017Page 8 of 142nd Grade Reading Curriculum Guide
