You will need to work with each child individually. Place the student response sheet before the child. There will be different printed sheets for uppercase letter recognition, lowercase letter recognition, alphabet sound recognition, and alphabet writing. Write the child's name and the date of the assessment on each sheet.
In the case of uppercase letter recognition, hand the child the sheet and have him or her recognize the uppercase letters. Is the child able to recognize the letter on his or her own? Does the child recognize the letters quickly or does he or she have to think about it? Does the child fail to recognize the letters correctly? Make a note of these responses. Follow the same procedure for lowercase alphabet recognition.
For alphabet sound recognition, point out the letters and have the child read them out aloud. Does the child manage this correctly? Does the child need help with the correct pronunciation?
To check the alphabet writing ability, hand a response sheet with ruled lines and dictate the alphabet letter you want the child to write. Speak slowly and clearly.
Is the child able to write the alphabet letter? Does the child write it correctly? Is the child able to write legibly? Can the child write quickly or does he or she require more time?
For alphabet sequence understanding, you can hand out sheets that have blanks between letters and you can ask the child to fill in the blank. Can the child correctly specify the missing letter and note if he or she finds this activity difficult?
