DIAGNOSTIC: Breakdown of January 2006 Regents Physics Exam
By FizziksGuy In Exam Prep
Guide sheet to allow students to break down their performance on the January 2006 Regents Physics Exam by unit. Upon completing and scoring the exam, students fill out the diagnostic guide to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Once these areas have been identified, students may focus on areas with the greatest opportunity for improvement in order to differentiate their review time to their individual needs.
