Several times throughout the year, my students take interim assessments. These assessments cover material from each unit to date. This is the second day of a two day midcourse assessment, which covers material from the Introduction to Geometric Proofs and Proofs about Triangles units.
The assessment contains 19 questions, 12 multiple choice questions worth 2 points each, 4 short answer questions worth 3 points each, 2 long answer questions worth 4 points each, and 1 proof question worth 6 points for a total of 50 points. It should take the students approximately 45 minutes.
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.
