We had a math test today that over half of my students failed. It’s really frustrating because I feel like the half that failed didn’t even try. In fact, most of them failed because they didn’t do all of the problems or even missed full pages.
My new student is completely lost. Every answer is just filled in with 12345. Every. Answer.
When I work with her, she seems to understand the problems. At least she tries and follows along with what I tell her. On the test I feel like the word problems scared her and she basically gave up.
I can’t keep these scores. All of the math assessments go into the grade book. I’m going to have the students who didn’t finish the test finish it on Monday. And I’ll let the other students check their work.
I graded all of them, but didn’t write down scores. So the students will be able to see which answers they got wrong.
I’m not sure if that’s legal or ethical, but I don’t feel like the test in it’s current state is an accurate assessment of my students’ abilities.
I don’t give a fuck. I’m going to have them work on this test until the class at least averages a passing score.
This is super frustrating.
