Test Correction Procedure
You have ONE WEEK to complete test corrections. The week begins on the day the test is returned to you. You may get help from classmates and/or teachers. However, make sure YOU understand your errors enough to explain them clearly. UPDATE 11/2018: ALL test corrections MUST be completed in math lab.
You must do the following on a separate sheet of paper for each incorrect item on the test.
- Number the problem/question and rewrite it.
- Write at least TWO COMPLETE SENTENCES explaining what your error was and what you need to do to correct it. Write enough to prove that you now understand it.
- Show all the work to correct the problem and include the correct answer.
- Turn in the original test AND your corrections.
"I made a mistake with the order of operations rules. I should have multiplied before I added. To fix this, I will have to use the rules of order of operations correctly by multiplying before adding."
"My error was just a simple multiplication mistake. The volume of the cylinder I found was twice as big as it should be because I accidentally multiplied the height and area of the base incorrectly. I wrote that 6 X 4 = 48. It was a silly mistake."
