Grading Policy

  1. We are in a Standards Based Grading school and this classroom will score tests (Summative Assessments) as the standard for the class.
  2. Tests can be retaken up to a week after the first test is given, but all of the work leading up to the test needs to be done or a great effort has to be made in order to retake the test.
  3. All work will be marked as completed or incomplete on Family Link.
  4. Formative Assessments (quizzes and checking for understanding assignments during the unit) will also be scored and added to the total for grading as follows:
  5. Summative Assessments 80% of total grade.
  6. Formative Assessments 20% of total grade.
