Check-In Assessments for Differentiated Lessons

These 30 classroom-tested mini-assessments gauge students’ background knowledge at the beginning of a lesson or evaluate what they’ve learned at the end. Highly motivating formats like Alphabet Activator and Incredible Shrinking Summary require little preparation and actively engage students, priming their brains to retain and process key information and ideas. Assessment strategies can be adapted for any lesson, topic, or unit. For use with Grades 5 & Up.
