65%- Common Unit Assessments
These assessments demonstrate that you have completely mastered the skills that we have been covering. These assignments will make up 65% of total grade. Retakes will be allowed in this category given that students follow the teacher’s plan for retaking that assignment. This will not be done in a punitive manner but to ensure that the student improves the product from one submission to the next.
20%- Other Assessments
These tasks are given to periodically assess skills taught in class and to check your understanding as we move toward mastery (i.e. quizzes, essays, projects, performances, etc.).
These tasks serve to reinforce the skills taught through guided practice (i.e. homework, class assignments, reflective writing, etc.).
In order to retake/redo an assessment, the student must complete a relearning plan that has been developed in partnership his/her teacher.
