## Reflection: Unit Exams Area of Polygons Quiz - Section 2: Administering the Quiz

I hesitate to give extra credit on an exam because it is usually my higher level students who complete it and don't really need the additional credit.  However, I know that they love to be challenged and earning extra points is a great motivation.

I've noticed that my lower level students are disappointed when they don't have the time to at least try the extra credit.  Because of this, I give these students an opportunity to try the extra credit for homework.  I explain that it has to be done independently and they will receive partial credit for it.
