Test Corrections

One of the hallmarks of independent school (private school) education is that almost every interaction must have the likely conclusion of a positive outcome. And why not, why not make success an ever present option.

This philosophy leads to my question: What to do when students do poorly on tests?

Currently at my school there are two basic schemes:

  • Test Corrections
  • Test Retakes
Both of these have pros and cons which I will lay out in future posts, but I am interested in other methods. Feel free to describe them in the comments...
