The Test - Now What?
What if there was a chance for a student to redeem a poor test score?
Over the past few semesters I have tried some different techniques for encouraging
students to continue learning after the assessment. So often once the 'test' is over
the students move on or get stuck regardless if they really know the material or not.
The students who didn't perform well on the test flounder the rest of the semester.
What if there is a chance to redeem a poor test score?!? I can share what I have done
and the results that I have had.
