Pre-Test Assessment
Berry, Thomas
American Journal of Business Education, v1 n1 p19-22 2008
Pre-tests are a non-graded assessment tool used to determine pre-existing subject knowledge. Typically pre-tests are administered prior to a course to determine knowledge baseline, but here they are used to test students prior to topical material coverage throughout the course. While counterintuitive, the pre-tests cover material the student is not expected to know, but serve as a motivational tool and a"road map" for the students, resulting in improved course performance.
