Major tests can be retaken once. Two class periods shall be considered a reasonable time to remediate and retest. It has been my experience that students do better on retakes if the student begins to relearn and then retake soon after the original testing. I am usually available before and after school for help but please check with me beforehand about a given time. Ask for help that’s why I’m here.
