What do you do about students who don't take advantage of the opportunities to raise their grade or improve their test scores? I provide multiple opportunities to help students succeed on tests. - A study guide that details all of the information that will be on the exam. - We spend an entire period before each test reviewing study strategies and using them to prepare for the exam. - I essentially GIVE them their essay questions at the beginning of the unit, and we refer back to them the entire unit (they are our focus questions). - I allow students to use a half sheet of binder paper, front side only, to write notes on and use on the test. - I allow students to complete test corrections for half a point for each multiple choice questions, and completely redo one essay question. My problem is that the students who NEED to take advantage of these opportunities, DON'T. Instead, I get the students who get 24 out of 25 questions right, complete the corrections to get an extra half point that they really don't need. The students who have a 6 out of 25 don't do the corrections, they didn't create a note card, and I'm pretty darn sure they didn't even take a look at the study guide. It's frustrating, especially when these students are ones who have IEPs or 504s, and we have to explain to their parents why they're failing. Do you guys have any ideas on how to get students to take advantage of the multitude of opportunities presented to them? I'm thinking I might need to waste ANOTHER class period, essentially FORCING them to complete test corrections.
