Grading Policy

Students must turn in work on time. Mastery happens when students receive efficient and timely feedback and it's very difficult for students to catch up, when the class is moving ahead of them and students become responsible for old work, new work and staying on task, all at the same time.
See late work grades, below:
1 day late- 70 is the highest grade a student can receive
2 days late- 60 is the highest grade a student can receive
3 days late- 50 is the highest grade a student can receive
More than 3 days late- work is not graded

Re-takes:
According to MISD gradig policy, students may re-do any assignment or test within a reasonable amount of time. Supported by my administration, students have 5 days to re-do an assignment or re-take a test. Neither assignments, nor tests will be the same as the original.

Guidelines for Grading
Grades in core content areas will be defined by two categories:
1.Summative.
These grades will comprise 70% of a student’s grade average in the
course. (Summative category

this category will include tests, common unit
assessments (CUAs), projects, performances, and presentations.)
2.Formative.
These grades will comprise 30% of a student’s grade average in the
course. (Formative category

this category will include quizzes, common formative
assessments (CFAs), homework, and class work tasks.)
In accordance
with EIA (LOCAL), “a student shall be permitted a reasonable opportunity
to redo an assignment or retake a test for which the student received a failing grade.”
No grades shall be awarded to students for participation only or for completion of work
assigned. Grades shall be determined based on the mastery of the learned material in
the assignment, assessment or task.
