    Every week at my school, every teacher in the 4 core subjects, (math, English, science and social studies) gives a pre-test... At the end of the week, they get another 5 to 10 question test to see if they mastered the material.
    Probably unnecessary to do 2 quizzes a week, but one quick 5 to 10 question quiz per week to keep the students on their toes is pretty reasonable.

      These quizzes are in addition to any quizzes or tests we do as part of our regular instruction, and really, it's the benchmark testing every six weeks that eats so much instructional time. That's an extra 16 hours of tests every six weeks.
