• Math Department Grading and Retake Plan 2017-18

    Grading Policy
    The math department grading policy is that summative assignments, such as unit tests,
    count for 90% of the grade, and formative assignments, such as homework, quizzes,
    and checkpoints, count for 10% of the grade.


    Summative tests may be eligible for retakes based on the following requirements.


    Formative grades are final.

    Math Retake Requirements
    Each test will contain multiple sections. Each of those sections is attached to a specific
    math standard and will be assessed on its own.

    69% or below (D or F) = Students have the option to retake a section of the test if they meet the conditions listed below.

    70% or above (C, B or A) = No Retake. Math 6 See note below.

     

    Conditions for retake:
    ♦All homework, study guides, and other assignments fully completed by teacher assigned due date


    ♦Test signed by parent (if requested by the teacher)


    ♦Test corrections / re-teaching must be completed and mistakes will be analyzed according to teacher direction

     

    ♦Any other requirements from the teacher


    ♦May be required to attend a revisit session if directed by the teacher


    The teacher and student may make a plan for revisiting which could include: during class, sessions before school, after school, during resource, or with a math teacher.
    The retake will be given by the date of the next summative, as designated by the teacher or no retake will be given.
    Teachers reserve the right to refuse the retake option – some reasons may
    include:
    ♦inadequate preparation
    ♦students trying to raise grade due to careless errors made rather than conceptual issues


    The highest grade attained will be the grade entered.


    Students who are eligible for a retake and DO NOT follow the steps above by the deadline will not be allowed to complete the retake.
