It’s Test Day – Will This New Strategy Work?

August 31, 2011 at 9:51 am Leave a comment

As I have mentioned before, I am using a new approach in my intermediate algebra class. My students are taking their first test, so soon I’ll start to get an idea whether this will work. I have 47 students, and 39 of them had at least 90% on each homework assignment and at least 70% on the chapter quiz. Those were the conditions that qualify a student to earn 2 or 3 points on the exam or qualify to retake the exam if they fail it.

The 8 students who came up short with their quizzes will earn 1 point if they pass the test, 0 if they fail it. They are not eligible to retake the test if they fail it.

Tomorrow I will have a breakdown of the exam scores to share. I’m expecting good things.
