This is what I have students work on before we begin the unit on percents. For students who have already demonstrated proficiency on a skill within this pre-assessment, I differentiate by having them work on enrichment material. I also exempt them from that night's homework. They love it and try so much harder!!
Look for my correlating Percent Review and Percent Test to go along with this pre-assessment.
Pre Assessment includes:
Connecting percents, fractions and decimals
Percents > 100% and < 1%
Finding percent of a number
Solving Percent problems using proportions and equations
Applying percent to solving problems with tax and tip
