So today I’m giving my first test. It’s covering four learning objectives.
- MC.1 Properties of Matter
- MC.2 States of Matter
- MC.3 Classifying Matter
- AS.1 Subatomic Particles
I really think that the growth mindset work we did at the beginning of the year has helped them to be better prepared. I’ve also seen a 10 fold increase in quiz retakes requests compared to last year!
As I look forward, I’m looking over their atomic structure pretests (link). We didn’t do periodic table pretests this year, because I don’t think they come in with enough knowledge of it for those pretests to be productive.
