Our district has no policy AGAINST it so I personally do offer re-tests. With that being said... I find that TOO MANY students get a lower grade on the re-test or a grade only 1-2 points higher which drives me NUTS! To be eligible for the re-test students must correct the original test on separate paper and get it signed by a parent.

I'm interested in whether your district allows students to makeup tests or quizzes to raise their grades. If so, do you have requirements that students must complete prior to taking a makeup test? Are there limitations as to what the grade can be raised to? I currently only offer make ups for chapter tests but am considering extending this to quizzes in an effort to increase student mastery. Thanks for your input.
