Instructional Ideas

  • Prior to starting a unit about congruent and similar figures, give scholars the survey to determine what they already know and what needs to be addressed
  • After completing a geometry unit on congruency and similarities, direct learners to take the survey to find out if reteaching is necessary 
  • To save paper and highlight what knowledge was obtained, use the same survey before and after the corresponding unit
Classroom Considerations

  • Copies are required
  • Preview the questions to confirm whether or not the guide follows your instruction 
  • If using the same survey after the unit, instruct class members to write with a different color pen 
Pros

  • This pre and post assessment does not take up much time and provides plenty of information about your class' knowledge of similar and congruent figures 
Cons

  • None
