Elementary Word Skills

Grades > Elementary Report Cards > Elementary Word Skills

The Elementary Word Skills page allows you to assess whether the student has achieved certain skills related to high-frequency word recognition and color word recognition. The page is only available if the High-Frequency Word List or Color Word Recognition skills have been selected for inclusion on the report card on the Admin Skills-Based Report Card Setup - Step 1 page.


Word skills are a cumulative assessment; they are not stored by semester/cycle.

Assess a student's word skills:

1.        In the Course Section field, click drop-down arrow to select the course section for which you want to assess a student.

2.        In the Student field, click drop-down arrow to select a student in the selected course.

The student's name is displayed.

3.        Under High Frequency Word List and under Color Word Recognition, select the skill if the selected student has achieved this skill. A description of the student expectations for the quarter or cycle may also be displayed, if available.


Administrative users can add additional skills by editing the High-Frequency Work Skills or Color Word Recognition skill sets on Admin > Elementary Skills-Based Setup.
