The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of re-teaching and extension activities would improve student achievement on quarterly benchmark assessments in an eighth grade science classroom. The measurement tools used were the quarter one and quarter two eighth grade science benchmark exams. The design of this experiment was quasi-experimental using a pre-test and posttest comparison to examine the data. Achievement among all student groups from benchmark one to benchmark two improved; however, the gains in achievement were not statistically significant. In order to completely understand how re-teaching and extension activities can affect student achievement more research must be completed.
