Product Details

The Work Sampling System is a criterion-referenced observational assessment with extensive research supporting reliability and validity. 

Benefits

  • Collect information on the child’s work and compare it to grade-specific guidelines.
  • Identify what children are learning, what they are beginning to master, and what they still need to work on.
  • Use your observations and simplify the process of recording and interpreting them.
  • Inform curriculum and instruction planning.

Features

WSS includes three interrelated elements — Portfolios, Developmental Guidelines and Checklists, and Summary Reports — customized for each grade level.

  • Two kits available: Complete Classroom Implementation Kit (P3, P4, K through Grade 6) and Multi-Age Complete Classroom Implementation Kit (P3 and P4 combined).
  • Teacher’s manual provides an overview, explains each element of the system, gives step-by-step procedures, and offers practical suggestions.
  • Portfolio samples are gathered throughout the year and help demonstrate progress.
  • Developmental guidelines cover seven major curriculum areas: personal and social development, language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social studies, the arts, and physical development and health.
  • Summary reports replace conventional report cards as a way of recording progress, communicating with parents, and meeting reporting requirements.
