Instructions for Use:
Designed for students entering 7th grade math or Pre-Algebra. Get to know your students’ general math skills at the beginning of the year with a pre-assessment and use the follow-up quizzes to monitor growth!
I have given this pre-assessment in a variety of ways, from a partner or group quiz to an individual effort. I generally learn a lot about my students from either method– by circulating the room and having conversations with students about what they do or do not remember, or grading individual tests for a score and reviewing strengths and weaknesses in each or the categories.
I typically do not let students use a calculator as part of the pre-test is basic computation, and all questions can be done without a calculator.
This pre-assessment is a great way to gain understanding about student skills at the beginning of their new math year!
