360 Unit Skills Assessments, which are available with the CommonLit Essentials PRO Plus package, are assessments intended to help teachers track student performance and achievement throughout a 360 unit. There are two assessments per unit. These assessments are designed to be flexibly assigned as well as easily administered and completed by students within a single class period.
Each assessment includes a grade-level passage that aligns to the topics and themes discussed in that particular unit. They also include roughly 10 multiple choice questions and an optional writing question. These questions focus primarily on the skills that are explicitly taught in that unit. Multiple choice questions are automatically graded by the platform, and open response questions come with exemplars and quick rubrics that help teachers grade student responses.
You can purchase Unit Skills Assessments for CommonLit 360 units as part of the School Essentials PRO Plus package. These formative assessments can be used to flexibly track student achievement on the focus standards for the unit.
