14 Tips to Doing Rewrites, Redos, and Reassessments the Right Way

In Rick Wormeli’s article Redos and Retakes Done Right, he states “allowing students to redo assignments and assessments is the best way to prepare them for adult life.”
According to Wormeli, many teachers feel that denying students opportunities to show their full potential after providing substantial results builds ‘moral fibre’. These teachers have the mindset that there should be rigid deadlines for assignments and that marks should be taken off for late submissions, and even give zeroes in some situations. Wormeli counters by claiming that “these practices have the opposite effect: They retard student achievement and maturation.”
In Kenaston School, specifically in math and the senior sciences, students have the opportunity to redo assessments in 2011-2012. Teachers have taken Wormeli’s guidelines into consideration, applying some of his recommendations. Kenaston teachers advise that by incorporating Wormeli’s ideas into practice, teachers can make redos fair for both the student and teacher.

Drive Systems-Level Change to Understand and Support Educator Resilience

Educators play a central role in shaping students’ experiences of school, motivation levels, and engagement.

As we shift into summer learning and back-to-school plans, adult SEL must be a priority in order to create the right conditions for learning to take place. Administrators can measure, understand, and address staff social-emotional well-being. Educators deserve opportunities to practice self-care while building self-efficacy as they prepare for the year ahead.

Our signature Adult SEL Toolkit—aligned to CASEL's Focus Area 2 for SEL implementation—has been downloaded by more than 21,500 educators and administrators since its original release in 2019.

For the 2021-22 school year, we've enhanced the toolkit with new adult SEL activities, protocols, and professional learning resources to help educators recharge and foster resilience. Download the updated toolkit to strengthen your district’s focus on systemic SEL and adult well-being in the upcoming academic year.

What's Inside This Toolkit?

✔ Panorama's Adult SEL Measures (includes 15 survey topics)
✔ *NEW* 4 Adult SEL Strategies from Panorama's Playbook
✔ *NEW* Adult Growth Circles Protocol
✔ *NEW* Adult Self-Reflection Worksheets
