Day 29 – Group Test

After a great session with Chris Mikles a couple of days earlier, I decided to have a group open note test.  The whole idea was to create a medium stakes environment and have the students see how good their notes are.  They spent 10 minutes editing their notebooks and then worked really hard on the problems on the test.  Some of the challenges were some students trying to chat with other tables which I addressed with losing a point on the test for the whole group.  Also, I think having less questions and more worthy questions will give a lot more value to the test.  This will be great for evidence for reengagement before an individual test.
