# Unit Test

Lesson 22 of 22

## Objective: SWBAT: • Show what they know on the unit 8 test.

## Big Idea: What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 8 test.

#### Do Now

*5 min*

See my **Do Now** in my Strategy folder that explains my beginning of class routines.

Often, I create do nows that have problems that connect to the task that students will be working on that day. Today I want students to demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary words they have learned during this unit.

I ask students to share their thinking. I call on students to share their definitions and examples. I call on other students to say whether they agree or disagree with their classmates and why. Students are engaging in **MP3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.**

#### Optional Test Review

*5 min*

If I have time, I review a couple questions from the Unit 8 Review Packet that students identified as difficult during the do now. If possible, I call on other students to explain the problem and their thinking. I set a timer for 5 minutes to make sure that students have adequate time to finish the test.

#### Unit Test

*40 min*

For this test I used a few of different resources. My school has a membership for www.testwiz.net. This website has a very extensive item bank of Common Core questions. I search by standard and make modifications as necessary. Also, my school has subscription for the assessment bank for the College Preparatory Mathematics curriculum. The bank has a wide variety of rigorous multiple choice and open-response questions. See www.cpm.org for more details. The Massachusetts Department of Education also releases some of their past math questions.

I review testing expectations and students move their desks apart. I pass out the test and students work quietly. Students are engaging in **MP1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, MP2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively, **and** MP6: Attend to precision.**

If students do not finish the test, I set up a time (preferably today or the next day) for them to complete their work.
