Course pre tests

I was just wondering what the value might be of testing folks at the beginning of a course on the subject matter. Some people come in with more knowledge than others.

I'm afraid that without that, it's harder to see who's actually learning. And without that, it's harder to know when teaching has been effective.

Or in other words, when evaluating learning, I'd like to subtract out those who already knew a lot.
