Responsive Pre-Assessment

Pre-assessments are a great way to see how much the students already know about a topic.  However, given in the wrong time or without the proper data analysis, pre-assessments can be seen as a waste of time.  Using the Responsive Pre-assessment will give you that data quickly and easily for an entire unit of study.  It will also give you a simple view of how well your students know a topic to then plan instruction accordingly.

This page includes an instructional video that demonstrates the steps to create the assessment as well as examples from Texas 5th grade science strand 5.7 and 5.8.
