Reflection: Routines and Procedures Density Part II and Review - Section 4: Evaluate


Over the years I have found that the use of binders increases both my students and my organization of class materials.  Some of the essential parts of the binder include at table of contents, grade graph, quiz corrections, completed notes, class activities, and homework papers with stamps.

I have students fill out a Table of contents and add each assignment to the table of contents at the beginning of each class.  This helps to keep them organized and keep papers in order. 

I also have students graph their grades each week on a grade graph to ensure that they are keeping up on their grades and to help with their graphing skills.

Students are responsible for performing quiz corrections on each quiz as well aw write their percentage.  This ensures that they notice what they got incorrect and take the time to figure out the correct answer.  I also have them do percentage on each quiz to practice calculating percentages.

I only look for class notes and activities for completion, so students get partial credit if they are not done completely.

Finally, for homework assignments if students have them complete with a stamp they earn full credit and without a stamp earn partial credit.

This is the binder check I fill out for unit 1 while students take their exam.  I then put only 3 grades into the gradebook binder 1 labs, binder 1 hw/cw, and binder 1 quiz corrections.

This video goes over how I grade one particular student's binder check.
