Effective Pre-assessments

Marlys WeaverStoesz

“Effective pre-assessments can illuminate where students are now so that teachers can lead them to mastery.”

—Jessica Hockett

Ground Rules for Effective Pre-Assessments

  • Administer shortly before the lesson or unit that will be taught
  • Pique students’ interest in what they’re about to study
  • Include just a few questions
  • Be sure all assessments are accessible to all students
  • Seek to discover what students do know instead of seeking to confirm what they don’t know
  • Give students different and multiple ways to show what they know
