Request to Retest

This is a step that I think is essential when we are allowing students to retest. In the past, many of my students have expected a restest and have come to the conclusion that there is no need to study. "I'll just do it another day."

I tell my students this privelege is not free. Their eyes get all wide the first time, thinking they will need money and then I tell them the cost is time and effort. They have to prove that they have done something differently to ensure they will show an improved understanding of the concepts assessed.

After all, Einstein himself said it when he defined insanity as doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. Some of my students will learn the long way that their teacher is not insane... (at least not where it comes to assessing).
