Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Introduction to Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, & Dynamics: Preassessment - Section 2: Pre-Assessment


Although my plan for this pre-assessment is primarily to guide my instruction - it is also another vehicle I use to assist students in taking ownership of their learning.  After the Post Assessment for this unit is scored, I will hand back this Pre-Assessment along with it.  I suppose that Plaid Pete's Mom will again provide the brownies!  

I do this because no matter what the final score is - I want them to celebrate all they have learned - and they will learn a tremendous amount!  There will be some students who are not "at standard" yet.  And those are the kids that need this comparison more than the others.  They need to see that they are getting there - it is just going to take time.  If they don't have this opportunity to see their growth, then it can feel as though they are standing still while their peers are whizzing by them.  We just won't let that happen - not in this class.

Introduction to Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, & Dynamics: Preassessment

Unit 2: Plaid Pete Discovers What Matters in Ecosystems
Lesson 1 of 20

Objective: SWBAT demonstrate their prior knowledge about what is living vs. non-living, and the components of ecosystems.

Big Idea: What do students already know about the characteristics that define living things? What do they already know about the components that combine to form an ecosystem? Students take a pre-assessment that will be used to inform instruction.
