- Here's a list of a few other tests suggestions.
- Leave room on the test paper for work to be completed. Usually the more work space the better.
- Leave even more room for LD students.
- Print tests on one side only. Let the back be for "scrap."
- My tests usually run about 1 page = 1 half-hour in algebra, 1 page = 45 minutes in precalc.
- An answer key I can complete in 15-20 minutes, takes an hour when administers.
- I write a test that has 1 hour budgeted in the curriculum to take 1/2 hour so students has double the time to take the test and
time-and-a-half requirements for test administration are met. Yes, this means a test may only take as long as a quiz. [It is a trick
I learned from a very, very, good Italian professor.]
- I do not staple my tests together.
- When one student's papers are graded and recorded, I fold them in half to keep them together.
- Put the grading rubric on the answer key.
- Grade all of one question, or all of a small set of questions, at one time to be consistent.
