Summary: We know that students, especially this year, are displaying gaps in their knowledge, but addressing these deficiencies is challenging. To accommodate this, we designed chapter pre-assessments targeting prerequisite skills needed for success with the upcoming topic using the Achieve the Core Coherence Map as a guide to help identify the continuity of standards. Before starting the chapter, these pre-assessments are administered to determine the gaps or weaknesses that need to be addressed “right now”. Results help guide classroom instruction and identify students who may need more intense intervention.
