Testing for Comprehension


I find that students' reading comprehension on written tests is poor because they only rely on their memory. To force students to look back at the text for answers to comprehension questions, I require them to write the number of the question next to the answer in the text. By doing this, students can look back and see their incorrect reasoning, but more importantly, they take the time to look back and have a greater chance of understanding the text.
