## Reflection: Quizzes Writing and Evaluating Expressions - Section 1: Think About It

I give frequent, short quizzes in my class, so that I can keep track of how students are doing with mastering  content.  This Quick Expressions Vocabulary Quiz is an example of a quiz that I give during the Expressions Unit.

I also give quizzes on content from previous units, so that I can stay informed about long term retention.  I create a calendar of review standards, so that content from earlier in the year is being assessed throughout the school year.

If a quick quiz shows strong mastery, then I don't take action, in terms of my review standards.  If it looks like students are a little rusty with the content, I will plan a very quick mini-lesson and provide students practice in class and on homework.  If the data shows that students are struggling with the content, I will plan a re-teach, provide students with practice, and then assess again.
