5th grade teachers...what methods/ strategies do you use to assess your students' writing skills in the beginning of the school year?

Our district uses the On demand prompts from Calkins along with the Calkins rubrics.

assessing writing for B to S

I always have students write me a letter that addresses info about themselves, their goals, what they like and dislike about school. This way the vague prompt allows me to check for organization, topic sentences, details, sentence fluency, and conventions.
I always save the letter in their portfolio and bring it back out at the end of the year to show them how much they've grown as writers.
