Correction Slip (Click Here To See The Latest Version) is a printed piece of paper (see the picture above) that helps both the students and the teacher. It is usually used for only reading. It has different parts:
In this part, there are pronunciation mistakes that you had when you were at the blackboard. When there is no word here or the teacher writes “OK” it means you had very little pronunciation mistakes. When you see the word “Intonation”, it means you read the passage with Farsi accent and did not sound English.
Sometimes you see a number in front of your mistakes, mostly pronunciation mistakes. It means you have repeated the mistake that your classmates made before you. Here is an example: If you see “interesting (3)” , it means two of your classmates before you made the same mistakes and you are making this mistakes for the third time. 3 negative points are in these mistakes for you!!!
At the bottom of this part, you can see the number of mistakes you had i.e.” 5 ” . If you see a plus in front of this number i.e. “5+”, it shows you had more than this number of mistakes and the teacher did not have the chance or time to write them down for you!
This part is only for Pre Intermediate+ levels. The teacher writes some of the big mistakes that the student had when he was giving the summary. Remember that it is the number and also the type of the mistake(s) that is important to the teacher. So you should not count only the number of your mistakes and compare your grades with other classmates. If there is “NA” in this part, which is the short form of “Not Applied”, it means your level is below Pre Intermediate 1 and there is no summary for your reading part.

Intonation & Fluency :
Reading a passage correctly is something and reading it fluently and like a native speaker is another one! Sometimes the student reads a passage at the board with almost no mistake, but there are many pauses, stops, silences, repetitions, and things like that while reading ! and of course a good teacher must pay attention to these matters,too!
