    I have been doing test retakes and it does take a lot of time and I wasn’t really sure if indeed it was useful. I have also been not giving scores/marks/grades on anything but I do make marks when they are incorrect. I find the clear feedback is also labor-intensive and I wonder by me telling them what they need to go back over or telling them what they did wrong is also not productive? Will they learn from their mistake if I tell them what it was or will they learn more if they find out what their mistake is? Or will this kill their confidence? I can foresee that many students will look at getting something wrong as more work and I’m seeing more and more that they do not want to put in more work than they have to. How do you get students to put in the effort?
