What I mean is I checked the tests and passed them back and the students who did poorly we would talk but as for putting those grades in a grade book I didn't. Now in their writing I would look for those words and see if they were spelling them right. Now I couldn't look for all the words we did but I looked for the ones that meant the most. If you do take grades and put them in your grade book would you put them under conventions or content? Do you average their score each grading period?
