We get a poor turn out of students who take that option. I know that almost all the other classes in our school do revising/reassessments in class because they are usually revising a writing piece, but for math we give them quizzes every Friday and then they have a chance to make revisions. The math team finally decided to have students work on the revisions in class and then collect them. I found a few things from that experience, but the biggest was that students don't actually understand my feedback or next steps that I have given them thus far (whoops...). #2 As with edcamp, students are biggest allies for each other. We made "student helpers" who got most of the quizzes correct. We gave them guiding questions and they assisted each other. Plan moving forward and next year is to give bi-weekly quizzes and have them start revisions/reassessments in class.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
