Cumulative Quizzes

Assessing prior learning objectives to check for and emphasize retention

Context

The teacher assesses student retention through cumulative quizzes at the end of each unit. These quizzes assess a selection of topics picked from prior units to emphasize to students that they are accountable for all of the information previously covered. Data from cumulative quizzes can help educators identify gaps in student knowledge that may need to be addressed.
