Diary Assignment
This writing assessment was based on daily reflections.  Students were expected to have proper capitalization and end punctuation with their 6 COMPLETE sentences for each entry.  This was not an online assignment, but considered old-school writing in a journal (to alleviate internet excuses).  Expectations were modified for IEPs  and 504s.  Students were given opportunities to work on this during various RtIs.  Language and writing standards were attached to this assessment as well as posted in the classroom and referred to on a daily basis.  Also posted in Google Classroom and VSMS assignment notebook online.

Mini Research Report
Quarter 4 focused on the elements of nonfiction and their various forms.  Students received instruction on what is a research report and the characteristics of a great report.  This included evaluating reliable and credible sources, how to format and create complete citations (easybib.com), gathering information, organizing and compiling the information, and the presentation of their report.  Students were give a calendar to help guide their pacing of this assessment and opportunities to work and receive help in RtIs.  Standards that were graded on this report were posted and referred to on a daily basis.  ALL students knew the requirements of this assessment (research report).
