Kindergarten Assessment - This Kindergarten Assessment was first done using PowerPoint.  It was then turned into an Adobe .pdf file.  Using Adobe Acrobat, buttons and actions were added.  At the end of the assessment, a graded paper can be printed. This Kindergarten Assessment can be given to the entire class at once in the computer lab in about a half hour.  What once took the teacher hours of individual testing with each student can be done in a fraction of the time.  This allows the assessment to be done several times a year to track the progress of the class. Be patient! It takes about 5 minutes to download.
