My daughter brought home her Wednesday folder today (all graded papers are sent home once a week) and I noticed her benchmark math test had two grades, a 35 and an 87. These benchmark tests count for a large percentage of their grade and the 35 had been crossed out. She does well in school so I asked her why she got a 35 at first because such a low grade was concerning and unusual for her. She went on to tell me that they (the students) grade each others tests and that the girl that graded her test that day "doesn't like me" and that she marked almost all the answers wrong even though they were correct. My daughter said she had to take the test to the teacher to recheck because she knew some of the ones that were marked wrong were right and he re-graded her paper and corrected the grade to 87.
I didn't know students graded each others tests and I am not sure I am comfortable with.
Has anyone else had problems with this or have any thoughts on the issue?
Sometimes I feel like I'm making a "mountain out of a mole hill" on things like this.
