Question Detail

I have just finished my second week of student teaching. I have a question about assessment and ethical practice. There was a typo on a math quiz that was given. A student brought the quiz to the teacher and the teacher told the students about the typo. The teacher only told them about the typo audibly. When I examined and was grading the quizzes many students did not answer the question correctly. Is it ethical to still hold these students accountable for the quiz question points when a typo was made on the question? What is the best practice to handle the situation?

      I agree with Katie. Having an extra set of eyes and ears in the classroom is an advantage for the teacher too. There is a good chance the teacher did not notice the same thing you did and therefore it is definitely worth a discussion.
