Correct and Return Procedures for assignments, quizzes and tests

When assignments are returned  to students for corrections they should be returned within two days. There will be the words  C/R  or FIX ITEMS written across the top.  Students are to correct only those items circled O  or crossed off  /   or otherwise notated on the page. Students should come to me at the end of  class or SSP for clarification of items to be addressed. The original assignment must be stapled to the front  of the corrected copy and placed in the Correct and Return basket.  If a parent would like to have their child complete these over the weekend please send a note. If a student requires help with the corrections, they should come to SSP for help.  

For History Quizzes and Tests-  The students will use the text book to locate the correct answer- Using a different colored ink, they will write the correct answer along with the page number on the original tests.  In regards to essay and short answer questions, if corrections are necessary, they must be re-written and on a separate piece of paper and then stapled to the test. When Tests and Quizzes are returned home, a parent signature will be required. If you would like extra time to review these please send in a note with your child.
