This graphic organizer can be used as an assessment for learning. The teacher determines the vocabulary words related to the topic being introduced and has students place them in the chart. Students are then asked to rate their knowledge of the meaning of the word. The Adapted Knowledge Rating Scale features a column where students can write the meaning of the word after they encounter it and learn it. The definition should be written in the student’s own language. The Scale was adapted from the work of Blachowicz & Fisher.
