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.

Subject: Makeup tests & mastery

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.
