Reflection: Unit Exams Adding Integers Test - Section 2: Explore


83% of my students scored a B or better on the Adding Integers Test, so I feel good about their progress so far.  Though they were only being tested on one aspect of the material within the unit, I think it is good to start small and work your way up - kids feel successful, which makes for a better atmosphere overall. 

The main error that I saw kids make was actually the third problem on the test - they subtracted the two numbers instead of added them.  I was actually surprised that that was the most missed question - but it was.  Additionally, on the tests with the lowest scores - kids seemed to do well on the word problems, but not as well at just the skill problem.  Perhaps being able to draw a picture and make sense of the numbers in context was helpful for some students.
