Good News – Assessments
The Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program provides a full assessment program for Good News with a Pretest, Weekly Lesson Review, Unit Test and a Final Test (see below for descriptions of each). There are also simple Weekly Review Templates available.
- A Pretest to be administered at the beginning of the year will give the catechist-teacher a snapshot of how much each student already knows about the content of the faith for the upcoming level.
- Weekly Lesson Assessments are short-answer written quizzes in which students can show what they have learned from the week’s lesson.
- Four Unit Tests may be administered after each eight-week unit of the program.
- A Final Test may be administered after all 32 sessions of the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies have been completed.
- Lesson Review Templates can be used to review what a child has learned after each lesson. The templates can be printed out, completed at home, and submitted in the manner that works for you (available in English and Spanish).
Tests are available in 3 formats:
- PDFs for easy duplication
- Word documents for ease of customizing the tests by changing, adding, or removing questions
- NEW Online quiz: Easy & interactive:
