Mastery of content is a major goal of learning. To that end, we teachers want to ensure that our students come to master the content, even if they fail to prove mastery the first time they try. If you are like me, however, you are somewhat leery of retakes. A few years ago, my teammates and I were struggling with how to ensure that students prove mastery without retaking assessments. We drafted a few forms, and this is the one that I ultimately created for my classroom. This corrections handout allows students to reflect on why they performed the way that they did, what kinds of questions they missed, what the correct answers are as well as where they can be located, and how to improve next time.
This can be used in a variety of ways, per teacher discretion. In the past, I have allowed all students to correct responses on quizzes (but not cumulative tests) to earn back half of the points they were worth originally. Some colleagues who I have passed this on to have used it as a ticket to retake.
Thanks so much for considering downloading this product and I hope that you find it useful in your classroom. Have a great day!
