Reflection: Pre-Tests Metric Measurement: Playing with Non Standard Measurement & a CCSS Pre test - Section 2: Pre testing ideas about metric measurement


I knew that the pretests would show that the majority of my students knew nothing about metrics because of how fast the tests were turned in. I was right. Many made good guesses but none of them could convert on the charts. No one crossed unit measurements though. Conversions were very weak in word problems.
