Reflection: Backwards Planning Electricity and Magnetism Pretest - Section 1: Test Development


I created this test before starting the unit by looking at both my state science standards and the NGSS standards.  I looked at what each student needed to know or be able to do by the end of the unit, and then wrote an item for each of these ideas.  This unit is new to me, but if I've understood the standards well, I should be able to give this same assessment to my students at the end of the unit and see clear growth from the class as a whole, as well as individual students.
