Language achievement tests assess students K-5

Ballard & Tighe, Publishers released new formal assessment components for Carousel of IDEAS, 4th Edition-an English language development program for elementary grades. Adapted to students' cognitive and literacy levels, there are separate tests for grades K-1 and grades 2-5. The Carousel Testers are achievement tests designed to reveal how well students have mastered the chapter learning objectives so teachers can easily identify areas where some students may need more practice.

The Carousel Testers for grades K-1 focus on listening and speaking skills, including language functions and forms. The Carousel Testers for grades 2-5 assess listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills and consistently test language functions and forms presented in the Carousel program. The Carousel Tester Class Pack for each Carousel set includes an examiner's manual, consumable placement test booklets, and consumable end-of-chapter Testers.
