## Reflection: Pre-Tests Rounding to the Ten's Place - Section 2: Pre-Assessment

I don't give students unlimited time on this Rounding to Nearest 10 & 100 Pre-Assessment because if it takes them more than about twenty minutes to complete it, I know that they will benefit from more support with the skill.  Having students spend a long time with something that they truly don't know how to do, without giving them tools for a persistent, productive attack is a bad idea.  This was the old paradigm.  I work very hard not to do this, thus the constant formatives (formal and informal).

It's essential to avoid assumptions about what background knowledge/skills they bring with them to my classroom.

## Big Idea: Once students master the concept behind rounding to the closest ten they can apply it to all other rounding!
