Ensuring the Fairness& Accuracy of Student Assessments
If more than half of a class fails a quiz, test, or project,the teacher will give the students an opportunity to improve their grade onthat assignment. Teachers may accomplish this in a number of ways, includingbut not limited to allowing students to redo the assignment or allowingstudents to make corrections for partial credit.
When students receive a grade on a homework assignment withwhich they are unsatisfied, they may redo and resubmit the assignment withinone day from the date the assignment was returned to them. When they redo andresubmit work, students will earn up to ten (10) additional points on theiroriginal grade. No student can earn more than 100% on resubmitted homework.This policy does not apply to class work, quizzes, tests or project assignmentsor late homework.
Making-Up WorkFollowing Student Absence
When students are absent, they are expected to make up allclass work, tests, quizzes, and homework assignments that they missed whilethey were away from school. Upon their return from an absence, students aregiven a number of days equal to the number of days they were absent to completeand turn in all missed assignments. If they turn in the work within therequisite time period, students may earn full credit for the work. If they do notturn in the work within the requisite time period, students will not receivefull credit for that assignment.
If students fail to complete class work, homework, andproject assignments even though they are present, they have one day to make upthe work. Ten (10) points will be taken from the grade for the work being late.
