## Reflection: Pre-Tests Formative Assessment: Modeling Population Growth (A Math Assessment Project Classroom Challenge) - Section 1: Entry Ticket: Having Kittens

The pre-test for the Having Kittens Math Assessment Project Classroom Challenge Lesson is a great way to gauge baseline understanding through an open-ended formative assessment.

Students tend to be able to Annotate (Student Work Example) the prompt and provide a yes or now answer to the prompt, but have difficulty using evidence to justify their reasoning in this pre-assessment, for example Student Work ReasoningThere tends to be a variety of types of levels of responses for this pre-assessment, for example this Student Work Visual Reasoning has a relatively good strategy for analyzing the reasonableness of the poster by developing a visual representation/timeline.

It is important for students to complete the task independently, as they will be working together in small groups for the next section of class.
