## Reflection: Unit Exams Unit Test - Section 2: Unit 3 Test

After grading the Unit 3 exams, I noticed there were a number of students who did poorly on the exam.  I have decided to offer students an extra credit opportunity that focuses on some of the most important standards of unit 3.  This way students continue working on the standards until they have mastered them and the extra credit will help improve their grades.

I told students that if they were interested in the extra credit project they needed to come after school.  The first step is that students had to go through their test with a different color pen and figure out the correct answers to problems they got wrong.  Then, I choose unique values for each student for each extra credit project which prevents students from comparing answers.  Students must create a rough draft for each problem and then meet with me again.  I look over work and identify any areas students need to work on further.  Students must continue to revise their work until it is completely free of errors.  Once I approve their rough draft, I give them poster paper and students must create a colorful and neat poster that explains their work.  I plan on posting these examples on one of my bulletin boards.
