## Reflection: Conferencing What Have We Learned? - Assessing 0 to 5 - Section 3: Assessment & Centers

While paper pencil assessments are a common place in many kindergarten classrooms, the data collected is not always a clear indicator of a student's ability.  Kindergarten students who have difficulty writing will most likely not do well on this sort of assessment.  For this reason, I include notes on the students' assessments based on the observations that I make while the students are working.  This year in particular I have several students who are great at counting and recognizing numbers, but they are unable to write the numbers.  I made note of this on their assessments.  I had some number cards with me and had those students tell me and then show me which number they were attempting to write.
