Science Ch. 2: Plants Grow and Change
This is how I test.
First is an oral test. I hold the cards and flip through them as they call out the answer only. I am looking for speed and fluency. If they miss more than one, if they count on their fingers, or if I can see them counting in their head, they are not ready to move on. I am looking for a quick response showing they know the answer without much delay. If they pass the oral test, they have a quick paper test with the same facts in a different order.
I hate to tell them they cannot move on, but if they do not know the facts, they need to practice more. Having all of the colors should mean they have mastered all the facts and they can quickly answer each math fact. The goal is one or two tests a week.
