Common Core Geometry Midcourse Assessment Day 1 of 2
Lesson 4 of 5
Objective: SWBAT demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the content in the course
Several times throughout the year, my students take interim assessments. These assessments cover material from each unit to date. This is the first day of a two day midcourse assessment, which covers geometric constructions, geometric transformations, and rigid motions [Note: this links will bring you to the first lesson in each of the units].
The assessment contains 20 questions, 15 multiple choice questions worth 2 points each, 4 short answer questions worth 3 points each, and 1 question worth 8 points for a total of 50 points. It should take the students approximately 45 minutes. Students need a compass and straight edge for the constructions.
Interim assessments help teachers gather information about what their students know and can be used to inform teaching. If I notice many students difficulty with a specific topic even after the assessment, I build in extra practice into future lessons.
