Summary Find every Chance-related Progression Point, in Level-order, from Prep to Year 10. Translate each Progression Point into a pencil-and-paper task. This makes a developmentally or progressively graded worksheet-like ''diagnostic profile' for assessing knowledge of and skills with Chance. It is diagnostic because it starts with easy, early questions, and progressively gets harder and harder as the concepts and skills in the Chance curriculum develop. Presenting this diagnostic profile to students at the beginning of a unit of work on Chance gives invaluable formative assessment information to guide your teaching. Using the same profile, or a parrallel version at the end of the unit provides before-and-after summative assessment of the students' learning during the unit.
