Reflection: Data Analysis Working Backward and Forward...TEST! - Section 2: Explore

 

For the most part, students did quite well on the test - not as great as last week, but with an extra type of problem, I anticipated the scores to drop a little bit.  The most shocking results actually came from my advanced class - while I had several perfect scores in that class and the class average was a 92, there were at least five kids that refused to work backwards in a problem.  If something had been discounted, instead of using division they applied the percent as a mark up - which we had just discussed two days prior during the performance tasks, proving that it wouldn't work.  I was very disappointed with a few students' mistakes, but I know what I need to address now going into the final week of percents.
