Assessments

The Assessment section of the Teacher's Guide contains diagnostic pre- and post-tests, and unit quizzes that gauge student performance and drive instructional decisions. The pre‑test will help determine how to differentiate instruction: who needs to be challenged, for example, as well as who needs extra support. Using the post-test will provide some information on the extent to which students have learned the new roots.
