New policy for the 2018-2019 school year:
Of the 5 tests tentatively scheduled for the first semester, a student may retake a maximum of 2 tests. I will honor the higher score between the original score and the retake score. A student may only use one retake per test.

A retake must happen within one week from the day that the original test was handed back. The test retakes are also made by me with the same basic idea but numbers are switched and some word problems are reprhased.
If a student misses the original test date:
If a student ever misses the date of a test (version 1), they will take the retake test during my first available office hours (my version 2). A student who took version 2 as their original test may still use a retake which will be my version 3. This version 3 retake should be done no later than 1 week from the version 2 retake.
For example, the class has a test (version 1) on Wednesday. A student named Jim was absent but is back to school Thursday. My next available office hours would be Thursday at lunch. Jim should be there to take the retake test (which is actually my version 2). If Jim does poorly on the version 2, he has until the next Thursday for hisretake (which is my version 3).
