    Question What do you do when your child doesn't" pass" a quiz?

    This is my first year homeschooling my 1st grader, so forgive me if this seems like a duh question...

    Should I make my daughter redo the lesson until she gets a 100 on the test? What do you other parents do?

    We do the lesson over until he understands the material.

    I will have them redo the lesson. We strive for 90%.

    Everyone has their own standards. I like for my son to get at least 75%.

    Definitely a redo for us! I like to see 90% and above.

    First we try redoing just the quiz. Most of the time he misread a question, or was just rushing through it the first time. Before wasting his time redoing the entire lesson I have time retake the quiz first. *He has ALWAYS gotten 80% or higher the second time. That's just our way of working.

    I'm new too and decided from start anything graded below 90 I ask them the missed Qs if they get em we move on if there's misunderstanding we backtrack over what they aren't quite grasping.

    I just want to make sure my kids understand the material. If they did poorly on a quiz because the mis-clicked, I don't worry about it. One woman shared that her elementary aged child did very poorly on a quiz because a younger sibling (toddler) liked the noise made for wrong answers, and he was entertaining her while doing the lesson. He understood the material perfectly, and intionally selected wrong answers for her entertainment. Had that happened to my child, I wouldn't worry about it.

    With math lessons, it's easy to understand the general concept but still make sloppy mistakes. This is much more true in the older grades than for 1st grade math, however. There is some value to constant repetition to memorize math facts. But I don't worry if my child got a complex algebraic equation wrong because it was set up properly and arithmetic errors were made in the process. You need to use your judgement.

    I personally don't worry much about quiz grades.
