CLARK — Eighth grade students in Michelle McGeehan and Nicole Drasin’s math class at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark are getting a second chance to take their quizzes and tests. Once re-teaching of the material occurs, students will be eligible to retake a quiz or test.

This re-take policy is part of the Progressive Math Initiative (PMI), which is the new math program implemented in the Middle School this year. Students are able to re-take any quiz or test as long as it is done one week before the marking period ends and they correct their mistakes on the original assessment to prove they have a better understanding of the material. This gives students a do-over if they had an off day and has the students strive for a more complete understanding of the material.
