I did not individualize all of the
tests but created two different
assessments that I thought
would fit all of my students.

I will work with these five

students in a new/different
or a scheduled individual
meeting. After the
lesson/meeting I will reassess the students on the
problems from the test.
When re-teaching the
students, I will explicitly
explain why is it important
to relearn the material and
why I am having them re-do
the work. At the end of the
mini-lesson/meeting, the
student and I will create an
action plan that talks about
how they will take what the
have learned from the minilesson to apply to further
studying. The student(s)

questions all 20 students
together, earned a total
of 12-19 points on all
answer questions.


I provided opportunities for

students to engage into
homework problems, where I
provided feedback for them the
next day.
After the quizzes were graded
and scored, I differentiated
instruction for students in
groups by what they may have
struggled with.
I created a list of lessons from
the program IXL for individual
students that needed extra
practice and guidance.
I met with 7/20 students before
the summative assessment to
create an action plan for
practicing and studying certain
content before they had to take
the test.
I created two assessments so
that all students were able to
exceed to their mastery level,

After the assessment, I will

create a questionnaire to
create data of how well
students connected with the
homework, activities, and
different resources for the
content. I will use these
questionnaires to help drive
other units that the
students will be engaging
in. The 7 students that I me
with for an action plan will
be given a notecard from
me that explains how well
they took on the action plan
to do well on the test.
Students will also be given
blank assessment and they
will write all over it about
what they think needs to
change with the format,
support questions, or
questions themselves. This

I will reassess all students

on this problem after we
have a whole class relearning lesson. I will ask
students to flip to the
Factoring Success page in
their math notebook to
review the 5 steps for the
process. (Lesson: Factoring
Trinomials) We will work out
a similar problem to the one
on the final test and
critically think about how
with some problems we can
pull out a number/variable
from the beginning. At the
end of the mini-lesson, the
students will work on two
practice problems and they
will write 1-2 sentences
under the problems to
explicitly state their
confidence level on the

problem. I will be able to

compare their comfort level
to where they were when
they took the exam. The
next day the students will
be given the test problem
and they will be able to
show where they are within
mastery level. I will add the
points they have earned to
their total test points.
