## Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Test Corrections - Section 1: Purpose

It is at the teacher's discretion as to whether students will earn back points for their test corrections.  I have found that students are more likely to complete their corrections with thought and care, if they have the incentive of improving their test score.  Usually, I offer the possibility of earning back half the points that they've lost on the test.

Be sure to emphasize that students should not only show the correct work for solving the problem, but also explain their mistakes completely, in order to gain back points.
