California Learning Record is a slightly expanded form of the Primary Language Record that can be used with grades K-12. It is a descriptive instrument designed to record the progress of students in grade school in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. This sort of record can be helpful to a student's future teachers who are not yet acquainted with the student's level of progress, and is a source of information for school administrators and parents. Part A of the Record is completed early in the school year and is a summary of the conferences between teacher and parents about the student's language activities at home, as well as a conference between the teacher and student about his uses of language and preferences in books. In the middle of the year, the teacher completes Part B by commenting on how the student uses speech in a variety of environments, how well the student is reading and writing, and the student's use of language in interactional settings. At the end of the year, parents are given the opportunity to comment on the Record in Part C, and the teacher and student have a conference in which the student evaluates his own progress. A final section is available for comments from a future teacher who notes changes and development in the student's language skills at a later date. A data collection instrument on which teachers may record their observations accompanies the Record and prompts teachers to comment on the social contexts of interaction, the strategies the student uses in reading and writing, and the student's remarks and attitude to various language tasks. This is a descriptive instrument not intended for formal measurement, so no estimates of reliability or validity have been made.
