First, I consider local, state and national data and research around the leading indicators and issues that I am seeing arise.

I look at their ages, and the way they learn differently. Everyone learns differently so everyone's needs in the classroom are going to differ.
With my prior teaching experience, I understand that every student learns differently; Auditory, Visual, Kinesthetic. That's why it's very important that I present my material in a variety of ways, so I can reach every student's learning style. There are several different types of assessments that I would implement into my classroom. I feel that I could measure comprehension through Q&A during our group discussions. That way I could determine what information needs to be retaught in further detail. I would also be able to determine prior knowledge based on Pre-Assessments, and measure their gain score through a Post-Assessment. Other ways of measurement... Portfolio, journaling, quizzes, and individual/group projects!
