Letter to Parents After a Test
Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: September 15, 2001
always felt it was important to keep good communication with parents,
especially when sending home a test. This gives parents the opportunity
to see exactly how their child did and know what they can do to
help at home. I also ask for a parent signature at the bottom
of the letter. The following letter is an example of one that
was given in a 4th grade class at the beginning of a new school
year. This particular one was sent hom with a math test:
The attached paper is our first unit math test taken last Friday.
This first chapter was a review of things that were taught in
3rd grade. I do understand though that the summer months can be
long, and much is forgotten. We will go over examples from the
test again this week so that it is truly learned. Will you please
go through the test with your child and help them correct the
problems they missed? This would be greatly appreciated. For those
students that scored below 80%, another opportunity to take a
similar test will be given this Friday. Those scoring above 80%
can take it again, if they wish, to improve their score.
again for your help in this effort.
