Notebook Quizzes

A notebook quiz consists of ten problems that were assigned over the course of the chapter for homework.  The student looks through his homework notebook and only his notebook, finds the given problem, and writes his answer to that problem on his notebook quiz.  Notebook quizzes must be completed by the student and proctored by a parent.


  1. To ensure students do their homework assignments as instructed and in an organized manner.
  2. To ensure students correct wrong homework answers. In doing so, they should learn the content correctly.

Sample Problem:   

  1. 06-08 (p. 267): #11

How Students Should Prepare:

  1. Do all homework assignments, including class handouts and review sheets.
  2. Label all assignments from the text with either the section number or page number, or better yet, both. Both the section number and the page number will appear on each notebook quiz problem.
  3. Number all homework problems.
  4. Keep your homework organized in either a spiral notebook or three-ring binder.  Have a system for keeping handouts organized as well.  Your notebook may have pockets for loose papers, or you may want to get a small three-ring binder or folder, but be prepared to find answers from these papers on a notebook quiz as well.
  5. Correct any problem you miss.
  6. Ask questions at the beginning of class if you did not understand how to correct a homework problem that you missed.

Be Encouraged:

Notebook Quizzes are not to be feared.  If you are a diligent student who does your homework, grades your homework, corrects wrong answers, and asks questions when you don’t understand homework problems, then notebook quizzes are a way for your diligence to be recognized and rewarded.  If you haven’t been so diligent in the past, now is a good time to train yourself to be disciplined in your work.  Such training will serve you very well in this class, in college, and in life.

Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.  2 Corinthians 8:7
