Test Corrections

Test corrections allow you to earn back up to one half of the points you missed on a
test. In order to earn the maximum amount of credit, you must do the following things for
each question.

Label each question and indicate the number of points lost for each
question.
(I lost 3 points on question #4)

Identify in writing what your mistakes are.


This may include a lack of understanding of the question, operational errors,
faulty solving method, or something else. "I was clueless" is not an acceptable
answer. Your errors need to be explained.

Indicate in writing how to solve the problem.


Explain in a few words the process you will use to solve the problem.

Work out the problem showing step-by-step detail, arriving at the correct
solution.
Your solution must be correct in every way. (Fractions reduced, like terms
combined, radicals rationalized, graphs on a printed coordinate grid, theorems
cited if a proof, etc.) No credit is given for an incorrect solution.

The written portion of your corrections must be typed (the math may be written by hand
in a blank space left under the explanation.)
In no instance will a student be given points that would bring their test grade over a
score of 89%.
Research aids you may use to determine the correct solution include your test, other
students, teachers, parents, the internet, or any other source you choose. You can only
ask Ms. Smaglik questions on no more than 2 exact problems. The goal of this exercise
is for you to learn how to solve the problem and do the appropriate work/research. You
may not receive help from a teacher on the day of the corrections are due.
Corrections must be neat, clearly labeled, and stapled to the front of your original test.

TEST CORRECTIONS ARE DUE 1 WEEK FROM THE DAY YOUR TESTS ARE
PASSED BACK TO YOU. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE DUE DATE.
Papers will be handed in at the beginning of class on the due date. If you are absent
from school on the due date, the paper must be handed in before first period on your
next school day. Do not wait until the next class, as your work will not be accepted.
Since test corrections are a privilege, not a right, it is important that you "earn" this
privilege. When I pass out an exam, I will check to see that you have received credit for
at least 80% of the homework assigned for that exam. If you have not received the
credit you will be "ineligible" to do test corrections for that test. It is your responsibility to
be in class on time when homework is checked and when absent to do the missed
assignments and show them for credit.
