Test Correction Procedures:
 I will allow "Test Correction" on Chapter Test/Quizzes for those who scored 69% or below. This is designed to be a learning experience, as well as an avenue to help improve the students original score. The original test must be signed by a parent/guardian in order for me to accept and enter the new "Test Correction"grade of up to 70%. I highly recommend that your student attends Lunch Bunch or schedules a time after school to complete the test correction with me. This allows me to effectively reteach as necessary, scaffold students in finding their errors and correcting them, and clarifying any misconceptions to master the concepts. 

***Please be sure to follow ALL procedures listed on the pink flyer attached to the original test (also stated below). Students will have one week from the day the test/quiz was returned to them  to complete their test corrections.***

 Test Correction Procedures:
     *  The original test MUST be signed.
     *   Corrections must be done on a separate sheet of paper
     *   Only redo the questions that were missed
     *   Write out the questions first and number them.
     *   Show ALL work 
     *   State your error analysis in a complete sentence
     *   Staple corrections to the original test
     *  Hand in directly to the teacher.
