# No Surprises Testing

Lesson 19 of 19

## Objective: SWBAT demonstrate understanding of analyzing and interpreting functions by successful completion of the unit assessment.

## Big Idea: Students know what to expect for this assessment and should be ready and able to show how much they understand.

#### Ready

*5 min*

**I have written a traditional assessment with short-answer problems and application problems similar to the work done in the unit, the review and the self-assessment, hence the title "no-surprises testing". I like to give students this kind of familiar format.......and then they know what to expect. As always I remind them that they need to show their work even if they're using a calculator and to write legibly. **

#### Testing

*45 min*

I distribute the Assessment, ask if there are any questions and tell my students they have until the end of class to complete the test. **(MP1, MP2)** As they work I walk around offering encouragement and redirecting as necessary. In spite of all the time and effort spent preparing for this assessment, there will still be a few students who feel "surprised", an issue I address in my video.

As students finish I encourage them to use the remaining time to check their work and make sure they answered every question as completely as possible.
