  • Cells Unit Exam Test Corrections

    Posted by Amy Soffa at 12/6/2017

    Cells Unit Test Corrections. If you received less than 60 points on the exam you have permission to hand in test corrections. You can receive 50% of your points back. The highest grade that you can receive, though, is an 80% which is 60 / 75 points.
    Rules: You must correct all missed questions. If you correct less than all of them then you will receive no points. On a sheet of notebook paper, you must list the question number, write the entire question and then write the answer you gave and then the correct answer. You Must, then, write me 1 or 2 sentences as to why the correct answer is correct, using a solid reason, meaning do not write that it is correct because it is true. Hand in both your exam and the corrections together. Corrections will be due by Wednesday, December 13th. I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY CORRECTIONS AFTER THE 13TH. So, if you plan to be absent, turn them in prior to the 13th. Or, get them done quickly!
