•  Eagle Ridge Science Department 2018-2019


    In an effort to help every student be successful and attain his/her potential, we have developed the following plan which provides opportunities for further instruction, targeted reassessment, and achievement of learning targets:


    SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENTS: tests, quizzes, projects, labs, etc. will make up 90% of the Science Quarterly Grade. 

    FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS: will receive a weighted grade of 10%, and will provide relevant practice for the curriculum.


    All students who would like to retake an assessment are required to submit a Summative Re-take Application, signed by a parent.  These students will receive the opportunity for re-teaching and will re-take the assessment, within the re-take window.  Students will be given an alternate version of the test and the student will receive the highest grade earned as a replacement of the original score.  Students are permitted to retake one assessment per quarter.


    Students are responsible for choosing when it is best to use their re-take opportunities.  Parent signature on the Summative Assessment Re-take form is necessary in order for the student to participate in a re-take.  It is the student's responsibility to return the signed form to the teacher.  If a student has not completed all assignments leading up to the summative assessment, he/she may be found ineligible to participate in a re-take.


    In addition to working directly with the teacher or peer tutor, a student may also be required to complete work outside of school until he/she is able to demonstrate an understanding of the targeted standard(s).


    Students will be re-assessed at the date given to them in order to show retention of taught material.
