Reflection: Unit Exams Uniform Acceleration Unit Test - Section 1: Unit 3 Test


As the students were taking the test, I noticed that it took many of them longer than I had anticipated which had me a little bit concerned. As I graded the tests, I was able to see that there were a few themes in what students got wrong, discussed in the videos in the narrative above. Overall, however, the test scores were above my expectations. In all three of my classes, the averages were about 75% which is where all assessments have been so far this year. I was anticipating this assessment being different because of how difficult the concepts were for the students throughout the unit. But overall, students seemed to succeed, which greatly surprised me. The struggles of my students overall were mainly with the graphs; transposing the information from one type (position vs. time, velocity vs. time, acceleration vs. time) to another and getting acceleration information from the graphs. Next time, I would make sure to give students more practice with the concepts to make sure that they understand the graphs fully before moving on to other concepts.
