This is my 4th year teaching 5th grade. I always want the parents to know how their children are performing on tests. I usually have the kids bring home their test to get it signed. They then have to bring it back the next day with the signed parent signature. I've always struggled with this though because you have the kids (usually the ones who fail) who "forget" to get it signed or "lose" their test. I know I can just call the parents and tell them the grade but if the child loses it or throws it away, I don't have the proof anymore. My school is lacking in funds, and I highly doubt that they would allow me to make copies of all failed tests. Does anyone have any other ideas to ensure that parents are seeing the test grades? What do you do in your classroom once tests are handed back to students? Thanks for the help!
