Retake Procedures



Retakes:

The ability to retake any assessment will always be at my discretion. If you have provided evidence of consistent homework completion and attention to feedback on formative assessments, you can retake an assessment. If, however, you fail to do the homework on a regular basis and you do not make any effort to learn from your mistakes, you will not be allowed to retake an assessment.

Quizzes: Must be completed with one week of original quiz.

  • All homework/classwork must be completed
  • Using your red/green correction pens, put the correct answer next to your original answer.
  • DO NOT erase or cross out your original answer. Just write you correction next to it.
  • You must thoroughly explain:
    • Why you got the original problem wrong
    • Why your new answer is correct and where you got the information from (cite your text, notes, or websites, and be sure to show all your work)
  • Redone quizzes may be done more than once, but you only have 1 week to do it in.

Tests: Must be completed within two weeks of the original test.

  • All homework/classwork must be completed.
  • Using your red/green correction pens, put the correct answer next to your original answer.
  • DO NOT erase or cross out your original answer. Just write your correction next to it.
  • You must thoroughly explain:
    • Why you got the original problem wrong
    • Why your new answer is correct and where you got the information from (cite your text, notes, or websites, and be sure to show all your work).
  • You must complete a request to retake and submit all of these items together.
  • When I approve your request, we will arrange a time for you to retake the test.
  • You will only be allowed one retake.
  • The retake will cover the same topics but be different from the original.
