Accelerated Math A test grade will be given for mastering a set of skills in a given amount of time. A score of 80% is considered to have mastered the skill. The diagnostic test is a tool to see what you already know. You will be given a chance to take more tests on what you did not know. After completing a practice sheet or exercise sheet, review the TOPs report in the following way: 1. Highlight the skills that you have a score of less than an 80%. These are skills that you have NOT yet mastered and will need to practice. 2. For each question that you missed on the skills that are NOT mastered, look back at each of the questions and circle the correct answer (you will find the answers on your TOPs report). 3. Try to determine why the correct answer makes sense and how you could have made a better choice. 4. If you are unsure about certain vocabulary word or process, use the big blue math book to look up those words or skill in the glossary or index. 5. Go to the pages in the book; read and study the examples, then try to figure out what will help you with the skills you are having problems with. 6. Before you raise your hand to ask for help, you need to have the question you are working on corrected and you need to be turned to the appropriate place in the big blue math book that explains that skill. 7. After fully reviewing the TOPS report with your test or practice sheets, you may begin the next practice on those skills not yet mastered. 8. A TEST GRADE will be given for each set of skills we are working on so mastering these skills will have a definite impact on your grade. 9. Once you have mastered all of the skills in this section, instead of working on Accelerated Math you will have an opportunity to work on homework or other activities.
