Corrections for Mid-Chapter Quizzes
1. Complete the problem(s) that were incorrect the correct way (show correct work).
2. Show the correct answer with the correct work.
3. Write a sentence to tell me what you did incorrectly the first time.
You will not receive full credit if you miss any of these steps.
Corrections for Chapter Tests
The school day after a chapter test (Form A), you will begin your corrections on a different test that has similar questions. You only have to do the questions on the new test (Form B) that correspond to the problem numbers you missed on the Form A test. For example, if on the Form A test you miss #3,5, and 9, then on the Form B test you must do #3,5, and 9.
This year students will take unit assessments at the end of a textbook unit. Students that earn an 85% or higher on all of the unit's chapter tests, before completing corrections, will be exempt for the unit assessment. Students may be directed to work in areas of ALEKS based on their scores.
ALEKS is an individualized program that is related to our textbook. Students have a weekly assignment every week until 6th grade is done in May. Students are to learn 7 skills or topics per week. The program will begin grading this on Mondays and will finish grading this on Sunday night. Students are allowed to choose what skills to work on each week, but I suggest they work on the skills we are studying in the book. For example, we are studying decimal operations, so I suggest that students master all of the skills in the Decimal section or pie slice in ALEKS. Students should also be checking their Google Classroom every day and night to check for posts, assignments, and due dates. Here is the link for ALEKS: ALEKS link
