TESTS, Corrections, and RE-TESTS!!!
Tests are one way for students to show mastery on a topic. When grades are posted for a test, each SOL learning objective being assessed will receive a grade.
If students score a 69% or less on a learning objective, they will be asked to do corrections. Corrections are to be written on a separate sheet of paper. For each error, I want the student to do:
1. Solve for the correct answer. Show all work.
2. Complete the sentence, "I got this wrong because......."
3. Complete the sentence, "I learned......"
Students who complete this assignment thoroughly and completely will be given the opportunity to re-test for the learning objective he or she did not do well previously. Re-take grades will re-place the previous grade. For extended students (6X and 7X), corrections are to be completed as homework and re-tests can be done in the morning from 7:15 AM to 8:00 AM or during silent sustained reading time during Core 3. Math 6 students will have class time to work on corrections and re-tests as needed.
