Quiz and Test Corrections

How to Make Quiz/Test Corrections

 

After receiving your test back, you should …

  • Take out a blank sheet of binder paper and title it Corrections. Make sure your name, date and period are in the upper right-hand corner.
  • For each question that you missed, write out how to correctly solve the problem, showing all work.
  • Staple your Corrections to the back of your original test! This one is important!  Show your test corrections to Mr. Serigstad no later than one week after the quiz/test was given back to you.
  • Quizzes are raised to a C grade (70%) and Tests are raised one letter grade.
Welcome to Mr Serigstad's Math Site!

...and never stop learning.

Math Syllabus

How the overall grade is determined:

Unit/Chapter Tests (50% of grade)
Homework Quizzes (35% of grade)
Homework Packets (15% of grade)

Homework Packets:

Homework will be assigned every day Monday through Thursday. All students will write the homework as well as the test and quiz schedules in their binder reminder each Mondays. All homework assignments can be found in a Homework Packet which is given at the start of the unit.


Students should not work more than 50 min on any night of homework (expected time is 20-30 min, but this varies from student to student). Students are expected to check their answers after completing their homework online on Google Classroom. We will go over the homework the next day to clear up any remaining misunderstandings or difficult problems.Homework Packets will be checked every day. Homework Packets will be turned in on the day of the test for a grade.

Weekly Homework Quizzes:

Homework Quizzes are given on Fridays. Homework Quizzes contain identical questions from the week's assigned homework. Students should review and study the homework they completed for the week before taking a Homework Quiz. 


Students are encouraged to maintain a growth mindset through these quizzes as they chart the steps towards mastery. They are meant to help students target areas of improvement before taking their Unit tests. Poor grades on tests and quizzes should be corrected for better understanding of mistakes and misconceptions. Students should seek out extra help or do extra practice/studying on missed problems and concepts as evidenced by these quizzes.

Unit Tests:

At the end of every unit students will have completed their Homework Packet and they can expect to turn it on the day of the upcoming Unit Test. Unit Tests will primarily encompass the concepts from the chapter of the textbook that was just completed but may include some things from other chapters as well.


Before the test is given, students are given a practice test beforehand. The problems on these practice tests are the same kinds of problems that will be given on the actual Unit Test. Therefore, students are highly encouraged to complete their practice test several times until they know what to do for every problem on the actual Unit Test. Answer keys to the practice test and links to print out additional copies as needed are available on Google Classroom.
