Throughout units, teachers use assessments to yield an emerging picture of those students who understand key ideas and can perform targeted tasks. Then the teacher shapes the next lesson to fit again the needs of individual students. Assessments need not be formal "tests" but may come from activities such as group discussions, journal or portfolio entries, skills inventories, homework assignments or interest surveys.
