Day 23 – Atomic Structure Pretest

So today I’m giving my first test. It’s covering four learning objectives.

  1. MC.1 Properties of Matter
  2. MC.2 States of Matter
  3. MC.3 Classifying Matter
  4. 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.
