My daughter can finish a math worksheet in mere minutes and get the majority of the asnwers correct (she'd get it all right if she would take an extra minute to look it over and check her work because the mistakes are usually pretty obvious...but thats a different issue). When she takes the math test though, it takes HOURS.
We're using Math U See. I don't give her the test unless I know she really understands the lesson. We do the first worksheet in the lesson together one day, and I back off as I see her understanding. Thursdays if I think she's got it, she has to teach the problems on the review worksheet to me, and then Friday she takes the test if she's got it all down. We did it that way all last year and it worked really really well, and there were no issues. This year... I hand her the test booklet and it literally takes HOURS. Usually 1 hr 15 minutes on the first page, and 1 hr 15 minutes on the second page. As soon as she finishes it she does a reading and science test, and occasionally a history test. Those 2-3 tests are on average 3-4 pages not 2 pages, and she can finish ALL of them in less time cummulatively than it does for the one stinking 2 page math test!! I'm going crazy with. She keeps saying shes distracted, but I could have her in a white padded cell with nothing to look at, no music, nothing, and she'd still be "distracted." I've tried taking points off for taking too long ( we did 5 points for every 10 minutes over an hour which I still think was giving way more than enough time), and she could care less. Grades do not motivate her at all. I've tried bribery which didn't work either. I just am at a loss as what to try next to get her finished with it far faster than what she has been.
