## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Whole Number Pre Assessment - Section 3: Analyzing Answers

Knowledge checks - not tests.  In the last few years, brain research has shown that we as teachers are causing "math anxiety."  I don't think it is our fault - we have been trained and told to test, test, test.  I love the saying "You don't grow a pig by measuring it."  Our students aren't growing by taking tests.
