Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?   What idea, topic, or subject is important for me to learn and understand so that I can do this?   What will I do to show that I can do this? How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to decide if I need to work more on the unit assignments we just completed, and what I need to do if I want to retake the test.  
I need to find out if I had the information I needed for questions I missed, or if I need to do a better job collecting information on my formative assessments.  
I will compare questions I missed on the test with the notes I had available at the time. This is a reflective activity, where I can look back at how well I've done, and how I can use those results in the future.
Today you'll spend most of your time looking back on the past two days of assessments in class. 

To begin, open a PDF file called Unit 5 Test. As you get your own copy of the test back, take a look at the questions you missed, using the PDF file to see where in your notes you should have been able to find the correct answers. 
Ask yourself the following questions:
  1. Did you have enough information in your notes to answer the question correctly and you missed it?
  2. Did you need more information in your notes?
  3. Was the question confusing to you in some way?
  4. Could you answer the question correctly now?
Take your time going through the test. After some time on your own, we'll discuss some of the questions that many students missed as a class. 

We'll also discuss the open-note written assessment you took yesterday, so think about what you liked and didn't like about that activity as well. 

If we have time, we'll watch a short video that offers a different perspective on the Renaissance and discuss how it changes your current views about that time period.

HOMEWORK: None, unless you are planning to retake either of this week's assessments. If that's the case, work on your assignments and notes to prepare for the retake next week.
