Product Description
I use this form along with any pre-test I need to administer. The objective is to access students' prior knowledge that looks similar to the content on the pre-test.

As they are taking the pre-test, I ask the students to record their answers also on the Pre-Test Discussion Form and make note of details they see on the pre-test and record those details according to the questions. I also ask them to provide a quick reason as to why a particular answer was selected, even though I know that most of the answers will be "I guessed!" Many times this process leads to a great classroom discussion.

Once every one is finished, I collect the answer sheets and divide the students into groups of four. At this time, they get about 5-7 minutes to look over the pre-test and the details they have collected and discuss with their group their observations with each other. Then I will lead the class in unpacking the information. I may either ask each group to share out what they found or I ask each group about a specific set of questions to keep the discussion moving or I ask each individual to share information about one of their questions. As information is being shared, I record snippets of the discussion and generate a concept wall which I will post in my room.

Have Fun!
