Post Test Remediation
After giving a Common District Exam students are divided into to groups. The first group of students are those who did not meet the standard on the unit assessments and those students will be given additional support in order to remediate based on questions answered incorrectly on the exam. However, the general education teacher and a regular education teacher who divided the students into groups are not sure what activities would work as good enrichment activities for the other group of students who either met or exceeded the expectations of the exam. What type of enrichment activities would work well in this situation?

The enrichment activities depend upon the subject area. If this course is a reading or English Language Arts course then I recommend that you create activities that would introduce the students to the content on a higher level. Such as including books that are on a grade level above the student's present level. Additional activities would include having those students work on various projects that would require higher order thinking skills. For example, in my social studies class, we were studying economics, such as supply & demand, marketing, banking, prices, production, natural resources, etc. After the assessment, I assigned the students who either met or exceed on the assessment a special project. The students had to work together to create a product that they wanted to market and sell to the public. The project required them to create a company, find banking and develop a marketing plan to produce and sell their product. The group had to present their project to the class, my paraprofessional, and to me. This really required them to use higher order thinking skills to complete the project. It also required them to work together and demonstrate knowledge across multiple content areas.

The teacher could divide up the groups into flexible grouping where the individuals that did not meet the expectations for the exam are group members with those who met or mastered the test. Another strategy would be to challenge the students who met the expectations by allowing them to create their own exam for their fellow classmates or perhaps three test questions per student to be added to a test bank. Then, the questions can be combined for a final assessment.Also, students performing well on the exam could be set up as peer tutors. Once they began to teach the concepts and strategies to the struggling students, these students will learn at a higher retention.

I like using choice boards. I put all different levels of blooms taxonomy skills on the choice board. I include the higher order thinking skills for the gifted learners. They complete these activities independently.
