I use JupiterEd / Juno. Juno is the assessment part of this wonderful pair of tools. I use Rubrics based on a 5 pt. scale with all of my assignments, and with Jupiter I can set my grading to this scale. It’s wonderful!

I am looking for something that is more of a checklist app for Kindergarten. I want to check off or select what letters they know, what numbers, shapes, sight words etc. Also one where maybe I can type or add notes such as how high they can count. I’ve done lots of googling but just not finding anything and I’m not sure I am capable of creating anything!

I think I would consider building that in Google Sheets. You could even build a Google Form, and have it feed the Sheet each quarter, so that you could track growth over time. Google (G Suite) has great how-to videos available. You can add them as a Chrome extension as well.
