This 3 page pre-assessment will provide you with rich information about the prior knowledge of your students regarding whole numbers and place value. Most pre-assessments are designed to identify if students have mastered grade-level standards. Oftentimes, this leaves teachers with very little rich information to guide instruction. After all, students have not received the instruction that is probably necessary in order for them to be successful on a pre-assessment that measures grade-level skills. This pre-assessment checks necessary pre-requisite skills, as well as grade-level skills.
This assessment will give you rich information regarding where your whole numbers and place value instruction should start. This is also a great assessment for making intervention and enrichment groups!
