## Reflection: Quizzes Quiz 1 in Multiplication: Area Model fluency 1x2,1x3 & 1x4 digits - Section 3: Closure

Does it make sense? This quiz revealed that the question Does my answer make sense? needs to be a part of our everyday problem solving language to help focus understanding the meaning behind the problem solving. if I can develop the habit of this self questioning, I predict that I will see more accuracy arise.

Another problem  I noticed is that my students sometimes don't pay attention to what they are copying down from their partial product to add. Often they will transfer a ten thousands place number and make it a thousands place number in the addition.Error in copying partial products.

With each conversation, I am sure to set new goals for my students. This helps them understand what needs to be mastered. My students are allowed to retake quizzes to make their grade better and show mastery of the standard. I will give this quiz again to anyone who wants to take it. Anyone scoring below 70%, must take it again for mastery.

Quizzes are practice tests in my opinion, and if we are working toward mastery of standards, then the opportunity to practice for the test must be there, or we wind up creating gaps for our learners.

I do not allow them to retake a test.
