You are probably visiting this page because you did not perform as well as you would have liked on a recent quiz, test, or assessment. It happens to the best of us sometimes. The good news is that I believe you should have another opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned. The bad news is that you have a little work ahead of you (see guidelines below).
- You may request a retake for ONE learning objective (example language) each week. You will do this by completing a retake request form.
- Before coming to your retake session you will analyze your test or quiz. For each question that you got wrong in the particular learning objectives you will: (1) tell me why you choose the answer you did [if you guessed, that’s okay. But if you got 15 questions wrong because you were guessing, I think we know what your problem was], (2) what the correct answer is, and (3) why that is the correct answer. I firmly believe that this metacognition is important for your learning process.
- You agree to study and prepare for your retake. FYI: I am likely to quiz you about what you did to prepare.
- Show up at your requested period prepared with documentation of your preparation. If you do not show up at your requested time or if you are unprepared, I may not let you retake that particular section.
