Introduction to Proofs Assessment - Section 1: Assessment

For this assessment, I allowed my students to use their notebooks for reference. Many of my students have testing anxiety. The use of the notebook enabled my students to feel more comfortable. The answers to the questions were not explicitly stated in their notebooks so students had to know how to apply the information from their notebooks. The types of questions on the assessments allowed the students to demonstrate their understanding of the content covered in the unit. Overall, the grades on this exam were higher than on previous exams.

# Introduction to Proofs Assessment

Lesson 10 of 10

## Objective: SWBAT demonstrate their understanding of logic, theorems, postulates and basic proofs

#### Assessment

*45 min*

On this End of Unit Assessment, I included a variety of question types, including: multiple choice, true-false, short and long answer. Different students prefer and do better on different types of questions. Using a variety helps make the assessment more accessible to more students.

While students are working on the assessment, I circulate around the classroom to ensure students stay on task and work independently. I answer questions about non-content vocabulary and clarify instructions, but answer little else.

The students have the whole class period to work on the exam. If extra time is needed, I allow them to come back during lunch or after school to complete the exam.

After I grade the assessment, I hand it back to the students and allow them to make test corrections for partial credit. My goal is for the students to learn the concept and correct misconceptions.
