Pre-assessments can be helpful indicators to gauge students understanding of the topic prior to starting the lesson. Pre-assessments can also be helpful when grouping students for small group centers, targeting each smalls groups common need on all levels can help students learn at their pace.
Below is the link for my Kahoot pre-assessment. It consists of 5 questions that can be read to students. These questions are to gauge students understanding of subtraction numbers 0-10. The assessment could be given one on one.
Depending on the results of the pre-assessment an estimation of class break down may look like:
- the 5 students who answered most, including the most difficult, of the pre-assessment questions correctly.
- the 12 students who have some knowledge about the topic as shown in their score, but need to develop higher order thinking skills
- the 5 students who appear to have limited knowledge about the topic.
The mind map below illustrates the kinds of differentiated instruction for the 3 groups.
