Playing Tests & Retakes

Students may retake playing tests AFTER working on items that were noted on their test papers.  I typically give feedback to students regarding what items could use improvement, or what next steps there are as they continue to progress.  As I tell my students, a retake is not about rolling the dice and seeing if you get a better score.  It is about working to improve, and then demonstrating that you have improved and have earned a better score. 

 Students have until the end of the trimester for retakes, but I would prefer that students work on the assigned skills in a timely manner, and arrange retakes within a week or so of the test if possible so that their skill level stays with where the class should be.
