supplies you will need
Supplies You Will Need
  • Worksheet and Answer Sheet

  • Basket for individual problems
  • Zip-lock bags (snack or sandwich size)
  • Business size envelopes for problem strips
  • Optional: Old business cards, laminating pockets for business cards or plastic rolodex covers for business cards

getting started
Getting Started
  • Pick a topic for your problems and find an appropriate worksheet. We picked this one from this menu of Worksheet Generator 2.
worksheet and answer sheet
Worksheet and Answer Sheet
  • Be sure that the worksheet and answer sheet are the same size.
problem strips
Problem Strips
  • Cutthe worksheet and answer sheet in strips as shown.
  • Staple the strips at one end, with the problem strip on top, so that the students can check their own work.
  • Use business size envelopes to store the strips. Mark the name of the concept on the envelope.
individual problems 1
Individual Problems - 1
  • Cutthe worksheet and answer sheet in strips as before.
  • Invert the answer strip, then turn it over and slide the strips so that the blank sides are together.
  • Staple each individual problem and cut them apart.
  • The student can work each problem on paper, then turn it over to check his/her answer.
  • Store extra problems in a zip-lock bag until you need them. (Label the bag with the title of the worksheet.)

  • For more durable problems (to be used in a classroom or with a number of children in a family), print the worksheet and answer sheet on full-sheet label paper.
  • Cutthe worksheet and answer sheet in strips as before, then cut each set of strips into separate problems. Do not staple.
  • Peeling off the backing, put the problem on the back of an old business card, and the answer on the front, over the person’s name and company information.
  • Laminate the cards, or place them in rolodex covers.
  • If you plan to use the rolodex covers, you can store the problem cards in an zip-lock bag. Put the covers on when you are ready to use them.
self correcting worksheets
Self Correcting Worksheets
  • Print several copies of the worksheets and answer sheets for the same concept.
  • With the blank sides together, staple each worksheet to its answer sheet in the upper right hand corner.
  • When the student is through, s/he can simply lay the 2 sheet side by side for easy checking.
  • For some students, you may want to take the answer sheet until s/he has finished the work.
timed tests purposes
Timed Tests - Purposes
  • To provide practice with particular concepts.
  • To help the student see his speed and accuracy improve with a particular concept.
  • To enable parents, teachers and students to isolate particular difficulties.
    • In a timed test of multiplication facts, a student misses 6 x 9, 7 x 9, 9 x 6, and 9 x 7.
    • Which is the more productive assessment/comment?
      • You made 4 mistakes” or “You just missed 2 of the facts.”
timed tests procedures
Timed Tests - Procedures
  • For a timed test, a student should use a worksheet and answer sheet for a concept that he is studying.
  • Have the student put his name, the date, and his starting time at the top of the sheet.
  • When a student finishes, s/he should mark the time on the sheet, and then check his work.
  • S/he should compare the time and accuracy with previous tests of the same concept.
  • The goal should be an improvement in either time or accuracy for the current concept.
