    Formative assessments are a form of evaluative communication. These assessments exhibit the student's progress toward the learning target and count for 10% of the student's final grade. 


    Summative assessments demonstrate mastery of the standards, communicate what the student knows at the time of the assessment, and count towards 90% of the student's final grade. 


    Work habits/Behavior will communicate student choices in class. 


    Retake Policy

    In an effort to help every student be successful and attain his/her potential, the sixth-grade language arts team has developed the following plan which provides opportunities for further instruction, targeted re-assessment, and achievement of the learning targets:

    1. Students who receive less than 80% on a summative assessment are eligible for the retake process.  Not studying for a quiz or test is not a valid reason for a retake.
      1. The student will be given the higher grade between the original assessment and the reassessment up to an 80% 
    2. All class assignments and homework aligned with the assessment must be completed (extenuating circumstances will be considered).
    3. Retake plan: The student is responsible for both initiating and actively participating in the retake process within 5 school days of receiving their grade. 
    4. There may be additional requirements based on the type of assessment and individual circumstances...
