OF MARKING ENGLISH—FOR

PARENTS

Adding value to

your child's future

THE KUMON

COMMITMENT

As you now know Kumon is a

daily commitment. It is

expected that your child com-

pletes at least one workbook

per day. To just do the

workbook is NOT ENOUGH! It

needs to be marked and

corrected so that every single

page has a score of 100%.

Your child’s Kumon is NOT

finished unless you have fixed

every mistake in their assigned

workbook for that day.

To go on to the next workbook

without having corrected the

last workbook is detrimental to

your child’s learning process.

MARKING KEY:

A large neat

circle is

placed on the

page with no

errors.

Place a tick

through the

question number

of any incorrect or

un-attempted questions.

Place a triangle on

the question

number for any

question that

has been attempted,

however, is incomplete.

An example of this is

where there is a spelling

error, capitalisation error,

punctuation error or a

word is omitted.

NB. Please note that a

tick would be used for

any spelling, capitalisa-

tion or punctuation error

when the purpose of the

exercise is spelling, capi-

talisation or punctuation.

MARKING ENGLISH FRONT PAGE There are two scenarios you can end up with after

a Kumon workbook has been corrected:

Scenario 1—No mistakes were made. To indicate

this write a large 100% inside the circle on the front

page as shown below. A congratulatory comment can add a nice touch also.

Scenario 2—Mistakes were made. To indicate that

mistakes were made first time through and they are

now all correct write a 100% outside the circle on the

front page OR in the top left hand corner of the front

page as shown below. A regular comment of

encouragement is always appreciated too.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Always use a red pen

Always write neatly

Use the appropriate answer book

Sides a & b are considered as one page

GRADING (Please use a RED pen)

If there are NO mistakes then circle the

page. Write 100 in the top right-hand corner of

side a to indicate that all questions are correct

on side a & b.

Tick the question number if the answer is

wrong. Each tick has a value of 5 points, unless

otherwise specified on the worksheets eg Levels

2A-EII.

Place a triangle around the question number if

your child has spelt a word wrong, left a word out

or forgotten a capital letter or full stop for

example. Each triangle has a value of 1 point.

Add the marks up on both sides a and b and

then deduct that total from 100 to give a score

for that page. Write this score with a downward

arrow below in the top right-hand corner of side

a. Continue this for every page.

IF YOUR CHILD IS SELF-MARKING PLEASE EN-

SURE THEY CLOSE THE ANSWER BOOK TO FIX

THEIR MISTAKES.

When corrections are done re-check the

answers to ensure each answer is now correct

and if so then circle the tick/triangle and write

100 below the arrow on side a. This page is now

finished.

Keep in mind it may take more than one attempt

to correct an answer.

NO MISTAKES FIRST TIME
