Big Idea

This is a summative assessment for the unit, "Proofs about Parallelograms." The assessment consists of ten multiple choice questions, eight true/false questions, four short answer questions, and one proof.


45 minutes

On this assessment I included a variety of question types, including: multiple choice, true-false, short and long answer. Different students prefer and do better on different types of questions. Using a variety helps make the assessment more accessible to more students.  

While students are working on the assessment, I circulate around the classroom to ensure students stay on task and work independently. I answer questions about non-content vocabulary and clarify instructions, but answer little else. 

The students have the whole class period to work on the exam. If extra time is needed, I allow them to come back during lunch or after school to complete the exam. 

After I grade the assessment, I hand it back to the students and allow them to make test corrections for partial credit. My goal is for the students to learn the concept and correct misconceptions.
