Hi. Do tests need to be returned to students? What I have done to this point is return them and go over them in class, then I collect them and keep them on file. I know if I return them, students will pass them on to next year's students and I will have to write new tests (which I find is difficult for sciences which I teach). I let students see their tests anytime during extra-help, but I do not allow them out of my sight. Lately I am getting increased pressure from students (and even a parent) who say the tests belong to them and I am obligated to release them! Students argue they need them for exam study. I argue that my exams are not based on past tests, but are based on their notes and everything covered in class. What do I do? I have only been teaching for a few years... help!
