Make It Yourself Series:

Supplies You Will Need

- Worksheet and Answer Sheet
- Stapler
- 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

- 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

- Be sure that the worksheet and answer sheet are the same size.

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

- 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.)

Single problem and answer

Individual Problems - 2

- 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

- 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

- 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

- 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.
