To get us started I've been working on some timed tests. I've made three versions of each to avoid those crafty ones just memorizing the answers. I haven't printed them out to check the size of the text and writing spaces yet, that's the plan for tomorrow - - Okay, I printed these out today and the text and spacing look fine for my third graders! Hopefully they'll work for you, so here are my timed tests for adding zero (easy-peasy, right? you'd be surprised how long they still have to think about it), adding one, and adding doubles. Each test has 75 problems. Right now, I'm thinking that the kids will have to get 70 (93%) or at least 68 (91%) to pass, and I'm undecided on the amount of time I'll give them (maybe 1 min. to 1.5 min.). I'd love to hear your comments, ideas, and suggestions! Please tell me your thoughts!
