## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Pre-Assessment Adding and Subtracting Signed Rational Numbers - Section 2: Pre-Assessment

The reflections for pre-assessments will pretty much be the same.  I am a huge advocate of pre-assessments.  This allows you to guide your instruction, group students throughout the unit, and compare data from the beginning of the unit to the end of the unit.  This comparison data is critical in knowing exactly what your students banked within the unit.  This is your road map when you decide what you will reteach and embed in other units.

# Pre-Assessment Adding and Subtracting Signed Rational Numbers

Unit 6: Rational Numbers
Lesson 1 of 12

## Big Idea: How awesome is it to give a pre-assessment and allow the data to drive your instruction. This is a pre-assessment that focuses on the addition and subtraction of signed rational numbers.
