# Introducing Geometry Unit Assessment

Lesson 8 of 8

## Objective: Students will be able to define foundational geometry terms and answer questions that ask them to apply their understanding of foundational geometry terms.

Since yesterday was the first Group Test of the year, I make sure to explain how I graded all of the tests and give time for students to learn from their mistakes. I give students the opportunity to re-explain to each other after they have seen my feedback and to ask questions if they are still confused.

#### Individual Test

*60 min*

I grade tests by identifying the foundational, application, and extension items on the Introducing Geometry Unit Assessment. Typically, I ensure that the foundational items on the test are worth 70% of all the points earned; this way, a student with a foundational understanding of the unit's objectives can earn a passing grade on the test. From this point, application and extension items, both weighing in at 15%, boost students grades into the B or A range.

Problems 9, 10, and 11 are examples of Foundations items since students have to recall basic information like the definition of "non-collinear" or use appropriate symbols to mark a diagram.

Problem 12 is an example of an Application problem since students apply their understanding of the terms "concave" and "polygon," and then explain their thinking.

Problem 7 is an example of an Extension problem since students identify what they know from the symbols given in the picture to draw a conclusion about how to classify the given quadrilateral.
