Reflection: Pre-Tests Unit 1 Pre-Assessment - Section 1: Assessment Administration


In my classroom I use Pre-Assessments to determine the needs of each of my students. During today's lesson, I am looking for ways to tailor my lessons to meet unique needs. I do not want to bore my students by reviewing concepts that they know well, but I am also careful to plan lessons that do not intimidate my students. I use Pre-Assessment to categorize my students into groups for the unit:

  1. Does not demonstrate prior knowledge of Standards
  2. Some prior knowledge intermixed with misconceptions or gaps
  3. On target for learning the content of this unit
  4. Demonstrates fluency with some or all of the Standards in this unit

By placing my students into categories like these, I am better able to differentiate my instruction.
