Follow-up Letter to Parents After a Test

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: September 15, 2001

I 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:

Dear Parents,
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.

Thanks again for your help in this effort.
