Over the weekend, I have decided to offer corrections for the Spirit Bear test. The average grade was a 64. More students failed than passed. That usually means something is wrong with the test, so it would not be fair to the students to let the grades stand as they are.
Students have the opportunity to improve their scores by creating their own questions. On a sheet of paper, they will write questions and answer choices for each question.
Each one they write correctly will give them four points added to their existing grade. If they are happy with their grade, they do not need to do anything. All questions need to be submitted before the end of the day Friday (September 2).
I am sorry if the test results caused any grief at your house over the weekend. Perhaps this alternate assignment will ease some anxiety.
Feel free to ask me any questions and thanks for having great kids!
