1. Use separate paper. Students
who earn 89% or lower must use a separate piece of paper to
do these corrections. NOTE: Students
who earn 90% or higher may do these corrections and error
statements on the test itself--but then they must also write
"CORRECTED" at the top of the answer sheet above their name.
Those students with 90% or higher do not have to do steps 2
or 3 below, but must do steps 4, 5, and 6. However, if
a student with 90% or above does want to use a separate
piece of paper, they are allowed to do so. In that,
case, follow steps 2 and 3 also.
2. Write this heading in TOP RIGHT CORNER:
Test name (Example: Month 4 Part 1)
3. Write out the first
incorrect problem as shown on the test. YES, YOU MUST
WRITE OUT THE WHOLE PROBLEM.
4. Show your work, STEP BY STEP. Make sure it’s correct. Get help if you haven’t already figured out exactly what to do to get the correct answer.
5. Show the answer, correctly, at the end of the steps. Contact teacher if answer is not written on test.
6. Error Statement: Write one sentence explaining what you did wrong the first time. This is to make you think about what happened, and then you will not be likely to repeat the error. Only one sentence or phrase.
7. Draw a horizontal line after you finish one problem and sentence, before starting the next problem.
8. REPEAT STEPS 3 THOUGH 7 FOR EACH INCORRECT PROBLEMS, even if it has just –1 point.
9. Turning it
a. Put the test corrections paper you just did, ON TOP of the original test.
b. Staple them together--staple in the top left corner. Keep them in order, with your corrections on top of the test.
c. Do NOT put the corrections and the old test with the monthly work packet.
d. If retaking it, turn corrections in at the time you retake the test. Do not put them in the corrections box; you must hand the corrections and old test directly to Mr. Greenwood
e. If not retaking it, turn corrections and the old test in the corrections box that is in room 3. You must do this at the end of the month after taking this test.
