Parent communication

18 Aug

Teacher at this standards setting panel I’m at requires students to take tests home and get a parent signature in order to get the score recorded in the grade book. Thoughts?

    Interesting! Would work well for students who did well. However, I am thinking if I were a student that failed and didn’t want my parents to find out, I just wouldn’t show them and would take the 0. As a teacher, I know a zero is worse than say a 50% when it comes time to give a final grade and it would make a difference.

    On second thought, I guess the student couldn’t get away with that if the teacher regularly gave progress reports.

    I like it in concept. It would keep the parents involved so they would know how their student is doing more often than just at the end of each quarter. I do agree with Heather in that it doesn’t allow the students to hide one bad test from their parents.

    Overall, I think it’s a good way to make parent’s aware of their child’s grade and where that student is at in the class.
